EVERETT – Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit are investigating a shooting that killed one and injured another in north Everett.
Just after midnight, officers were dispatched to the 1600 block of 22nd St on the report of shots being fired inside an apartment. Arriving officers and fire units found two adult males - one deceased and the second with a gunshot wound. The second male was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett with what are believed to be nonlife-threatening injuries.
A police K-9 track was attempted but the male suspect had fled the apartment and is believed to have driven from the area before officers arrived.
Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit are investigating the incident and will be talking to the injured victim and witnesses to piece together what happened. While there is minimal information about the suspect or his vehicle, early indications lead investigators to believe the victims may have known the suspect.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will take custody of the deceased to determine cause and manner of death and will provide identity once family has been notified.
No further updates are expected tonight but will be provided as information becomes available.
Anyone with information about this incident or knows the suspect is asked to call the Everett Police Department TIP LINE at (425) 257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.
