Note: It sounds like Cetin was in Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) , a high school program. He need not have been an American citizen to have taken JROTC . JROTC teaches students citizenship. It is not an Army Officer producing program like Senior (College) ROTC. They don’t do any marksmanship training in JROTC anymore. Not like 50 years ago.
In the case of the Cascade Mall shooter mentioned earlier, witnesses said the shooter had a “Hispanic appearance”, a fact the MSM was unwilling to promote.
The suspect who has been arrested does have a more or less “Hispanic appearance”, but is actually a Turk named Arcan Cetin:

- If you vote “D” for governor who wants a score of muslim refugees entering our state weekly or for Hilary who wants millions constantly, get used to seeing more of this news. This will be the end of the American lifestyle as we know it.
Heavy.com, whose “5 Fast Facts You Need to Know” series frequently omits race, ethnicity, immigration status and whether someone is a Muslim or not, does at least manage to say that he’s Turkish (almost everyone in Turkey is Muslim):
Online records show that Cetin was arrested in July 2015 on charges of assault in the fourth degree. Initial descriptions had described Cetin as being Hispanic. According to his Facebook page, Cetin is a native of Adana in Turkey. He’s a graduate of Oak Harbor High School, class of 2015. Cetin describes his nickname as “The Turk.” As of 2014, he was in a relationship. While in high school, Cetin was in ROTC.Cetin is an active Call of Duty player.Arcan Cetin: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know, By Paul Farrell, September 24, 2016
The word “immigrant” is not used. “Native of” in stories like this is, in effect, a euphemism for immigrant.
He is presumably an American citizen if he was in ROTC.
