During the search for the suspects, one was found and arrested at Mariner High School by the School Resource Officer, a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office deputy. This arrest initiated a short school lock-down. The second suspect was arrested outside an apartment at 12102 4th Ave W. as the third ran inside. Officers surrounded the areas and the third male surrendered to police at about 3:00 p.m.
Detectives believe the incident was gang-related and are continuing to investigate.
