We present the first evidence for the production of [Formula Presented] states in the four-photon cascade, [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] followed by the [Formula Presented] annihilation into [Formula Presented] or [Formula Presented] The signal has a significance of 10.2 standard deviations. The measured product branching ratio for these five decays, [Formula Presented] is consistent with the theoretical estimates. The data are dominated by the production of one [Formula Presented] state consistent with the [Formula Presented] assignment. Its mass is determined to be [Formula Presented] MeV, which is consistent with the predictions from potential models and lattice QCD calculations. We also searched for [Formula Presented] [Formula Presented] followed by either [Formula Presented] or [Formula Presented] We find no evidence for such decays and set upper limits on the product branching ratios.
