Editor’s update 12:30pm: We have more information on events leading up to a standoff this morning on 76th street in Everett just north of Evergreen Middle School. Everett Police spokesman Aaron Snell tells MyEverettNews.com that around midnight officers responded to a domestic violence call at an apartment complex in the 300 block of 76th street. A man was arrested at that location and booked into the Snohomish County Jail. Three children were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center to be checked out as part of the incident. While investigating that case, officers contacted a second man who they determined to have multiple felony warrants. Around 2:00am that man fled into an attic crawl space which runs along the top of the apartment building. He refused to come down and tried to hide in the insulation. Officers had to obtain a search warrant to access the crawl space to arrest the man. Once the search warrant was signed by a judge officers tried to talk to the man through the vent on the outside of the building but he refused to cooperate or come out. Everett Police then fired multiple rounds of tear gas into the crawl space. They also attempted to gain access to the man by poking holes into the attic. Around 6:00am a police K-9 unit was brought in and officers were getting ready to put the dog into the crawl space when the man finally surrendered. He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on his outstanding warrants. Overall the standoff lasted just a little over 5 hours.We’ll get more details later this morning but a standoff between a felony warrant suspect and Everett Police lasted 5 hours and ended after officers used tear gas and a K-9 to get a man out of an apartment attic. For now here are some pictures of the scene with more to come later. Click to enlarge. Copyright MyEverettNews.com.
