Authorities pleaded with the public Saturday for help identifying a gunman who killed five people at a Washington state shopping mall.

A manhunt for the suspect, described as a Hispanic man in his late teens to early 20s wearing black clothes, continued as police scoured the Cascade Mall in Burlington, about 65 miles north of Seattle, for clues.

“Hopefully people who know and recognize this individual will help us,” Mt. Vernon Lt. Chris Cammock said.

The rifle used in the Friday night massacre was recovered, officials said. The FBI was assisting local authorities, but there was no evidence to point to terrorism.

The gunman killed five shoppers at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Wash.

An adult man who was wounded in the shooting died early Saturday, officials said.
