The suspect in a shooting at a Washington state mall that left five dead and sparked an intensive, nearly 24-hour manhunt is in custody, authorities said Saturday. Washington State Patrol Sgt. Mark Francis identified the suspect via Twitter as 20-year-old Arcan Cetin of Oak Harbor, Washington. Authorities announced earlier that the suspect had been apprehended Saturday evening.
Gennifer Flowers, the woman who allegedly had an affair with Bill Clinton while he was governor of Arkansas and has called Hillary Clinton an “enabler” of her husband’s sexual misdeeds, will reportedly be at Monday’s debate as Donald Trump’s guest.
Trump threatened to bring Flowers to the debate in response to the Clinton campaign’s decision to invite Mark Cuban, a billionaire reality TV star who has been critical of Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns.
