Major Police Investigation At 33rd And Broadway

9:40 PM Editor’s Update from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office:

Detectives with the Snohomish Multiple Agency Response Team (SMART) are investigating a use-of-force incident at the 3200 block of Broadway Ave. A 39 year-old Lake Stevens man is in critical condition at Providence Regional Medical Center following an altercation with Everett Police around 5 p.m. today.

Earlier this month, the Lake Stevens Police Department had established probable cause on the suspect for unlawful possession of firearms. Today, they served a search warrant on the suspect’s residence at the 10320 block of Oak Road in Lake Stevens while the suspect was at an appointment in Everett around 4:30 p.m. During the search, Lake Stevens police had reason to believe the suspect was armed. A detective from Lake Stevens PD was surveilling the suspect and had notified Everett PD of the suspect’s location and that he could be armed and dangerous. The suspect eventually left his appointment and started walking northbound on Broadway Ave. He was contacted by officers with Everett PD and an altercation ensued . An Everett PD sergeant deployed his Taser twice. The suspect began running away from the officers northbound on Broadway Ave and collapsed. Everett PD immediately requested aid units and began to administer life saving measures. The suspect was transported by Everett Fire Department to PRMC. Four Everett Police officers and one sergeant were involved in the incident. Two firearms were recovered from the suspect.

The investigation is being conducted by the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team (SMART), a team of detectives from various Snohomish County law enforcement agencies who respond to, and investigate, police use of force incidents. When the SMART investigation is complete, results will be forwarded to the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office for review.

7:39 PM Editor’s Update, The Snohomish County Sheriff’s spokesperson is acting as SMART Public Information and issued the following on Twitter:
SMART is investigating a use of force incident by @EverettPolice at the 3300 block of Broadway. 39 YO male in critical condition at hospital. Additional details to follow shortly.

With No Comments From Public After 3 Invitations, Everett Passes $650 Million Dollar Budget For 2020

There are 7 key priorities that shaped the 2020 budget.

The Everett City Council passed the 2020 budget at their meeting Wednesday night. They had the third and final public hearing on the budget and as with the previous two public hearings no citizens had comment or input.

With a unanimous vote the city council passed the budget.

The Mayor did mention that in the first quarter of 2020 the administration would bring forth proposed changes based on the apparent passage of I-976. No word yet what the final impact will be on the city.

Here is a link to the budget with the spending for each department outlined.

Comments Off on Buses May Go From Everett To Northgate Light Rail Station

Buses May Go From Everett To Northgate Light Rail Station

Changes are under consideration to get people from Everett to light rail long before that service makes it to Lynnwood. Here’s the scoop put out today by Community Transit.

Public invited to comment on transit ideas for connections with light rail when Northgate Link opens

As Link light rail expands north toward Snohomish County, Community Transit and Sound Transit are exploring bus service changes to connect riders with fast, reliable service to the University of Washington, downtown Seattle and other regional destinations.

The agencies are requesting feedback on a draft plan to connect some commuter routes to the Link Red Line at the new Northgate Station when it opens in 2021. Link light rail trains will depart Northgate every six minutes during peak hours. Travel time on Link from Northgate to the U District is expected to take six minutes; Northgate to downtown Seattle will take 14 minutes.

Potential changes to Snohomish County bus service include:

  • ST Express routes 510, 511, 512 and 513 that currently run between Snohomish County and downtown Seattle would connect to Link at Northgate instead. The shorter, more reliable bus trips would run more often as a result, including more midday and weekend service.
  • Community Transit routes 810, 821, 855, 860, 871 and 880 that currently run to the University of Washington campus would connect to Link at Northgate instead. The shorter, more reliable bus trips would run more often as a result, including more midday and afternoon service.

Community Transit 400 series buses serving downtown Seattle would continue service unchanged, as would the Sound Transit Sounder train service between Everett and Seattle.

The public is invited to learn more about the Link Connections: Northgate bus restructure project and provide comments via an online open house through December 31, 2019. People can visit to learn more.

Community Transit and Sound Transit will also conduct in-person outreach at locations throughout Snohomish County. Select outreach events are listed on the online open house webpage.

The agencies will consider the feedback they receive to refine the plan, which they will present to the public in the spring of 2020. The Sound Transit and Community Transit boards of directors will approve the final proposal in the summer of 2020.

Metro bus changes

King County Metro Transit will change bus service to connect to new Link stations. Changes to service may occur in North Seattle, U-District, Shoreline, Bothell, Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, and Woodinville. Metro expects to invite public feedback on concepts for change in January 2020. Find out more on Metro’s North Link Connections webpage.
