Tipster recognized Cascade Mall shooting suspect
A Washington man says he recognized the Cascade Mall shooting suspect from surveillance photos Saturday as a man who worked out at his gym in Oak Harbor.
“I just said to myself, that it looked like a guy that was at the gym,” Michael Wilson told Q13 FOX News. “Ya know, the same mannerisms, the same body structure type, same facial features. It just looked identical to him.”
Wilson said he struggled with whether to call authorities but then decided to call when he couldn't ignore a nagging feeling in his gut.
