Everett Police Chief Arrests Shooting Suspect

Medics prepare to transport the victim.

On Wednesday night, he told the Everett City Council he would be out with the rest of his officers dealing with fireworks complaints on the 4th of July but Everett Police Chief Dan Templeman probably did not expect to be arresting an armed shooting suspect.

As promised on the 4th, Chief Templeman was working fireworks patrol in the north end of Everett. Shortly after midnight a call came in of a woman who had been shot. The shooting occurred in the 2400 block of Highland. Templeman was nearby when the call came out and encountered a person matching the suspect’s description near 26th and Chestnut a few blocks away. Templeman detained the suspect and waited for backup. The suspect was taken into custody without incident and brought to the Everett Police station for questioning. When asked about the arrest by MyEverettNews.com, Chief Templeman politely declined comment.

The shooting victim was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center. At this early point in the investigation there was no word on her condition. Major Crimes detectives (who also spent the night in uniform working fireworks complaints) are still processing the area and working on the case. Above are a couple of photos from the scene. Click to enlarge. We’ll provide more information as it becomes available.

Woman Nearly Drowns At Silver Lake in Everett

Silver Lake 1

Crews load the woman into the back of a medic unit.

Quick work from bystanders, park rangers and personnel from Fire District 1 and the Everett Fire Department will hopefully lead to a positive outcome for a woman who went under at Silver Lake Park Saturday evening. Shortly before 7:00pm came a report of CPR in progress on the beach for a woman who went under in the swim area. Crews from both Fire District 1 and Everett Fire were dispatched. Both departments worked on the victim and she was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. No details were available on her condition.

You can see where the bike skidded to a stop.

It’s hard to outrun an airplane and police radios.

A motorcyclist who reportedly was going in excess of 100 miles per hour on I-5 learned its hard to run from a Washington State Patrol aircraft. Troopers clocked a motorcycle in Marysville at 100+ and gave chase which led south into Everett from Highway 529. A Washington State Patrol aircraft was overhead and as the bike came into Everett troopers backed off and followed directions given by the airplane. As the motorcyclist began taking side streets in Everett he came upon an Everett Police officer who was able to force the bike to a stop in the 2200 block of Oakes. Troopers and other Everett Police units were not far behind. The rider was taken into custody by Troopers for suspicion of eluding and resisting arrest according to a WSP Sargent on scene.
