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.
