EVERETT – Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit are investigating a parking lot shooting that injured three.
On Monday evening, June 29, 2015, at 7:00 p.m., officers responded to reports of a shooting with multiple victims in the parking lot of Taco Bell (7431 Evergreen Way). Arriving officers found two adult males had been wounded by gunfire and the shooter left the area. The two males were transported to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.
Witnesses believed a white Cadillac drove into the parking lot and both the driver and passenger got out. They approached the two males who were standing near the business and started a verbal argument. The situation escalated when the driver pulled out a handgun and fired numerous rounds at the two males. During the shooting, both males were struck as was the passenger. The driver and passenger got into the Cadillac and drove away.
A short time after the males were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, a white Cadillac also arrived at the hospital with a passenger who had a gunshot wound. The passenger was treated for his injuries while officers detained the driver.
Detectives will interview the driver and the Cadillac has been impounded pending a search warrant to search the interior.
The injuries to all three of the males are believed to be non-life threatening. All of the males involved in the incident are adult.
Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit responded to the scene and are investigating the incident.
