Everett PD Investigating After Multiple Shots Fired In Vacant South Everett Bank Lot On Evergreen Way

Everett Police walk the bank parking lot looking for evidence.

Officers collected multiple shell casings.

Around 7:30 PM Everett Police were called to reports of multiple shots fired in a vacant bank parking lot just east of Fred Meyer in the 8500 block of Evergreen Way in south Everett.

Arriving officers found multiple shell casings in the lot next to Evergreen Way.

Everett Police patrol officers were sorting things out, speaking with witnesses, gathering shell casings and other evidence.

As of this writing there were no reports of injuries.

In late October, the manager of the Evergreen Way Fred Meyer came before the Everett City Council to ask for help in dealing with what he said was out of control crime and drug dealing around his store. You can see that story here.

Since that time Everett Police have met with the manager of that store as well as the Fred Meyer at Murphy’s Corner and stepped up patrols but problems continue to persist.

We’ll provide more updates as they become available.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is announcing its first-ever public facing crime data dashboard. The Sheriff’s Office developed an interactive digital dashboard that encompasses crime data, crime trends, domestic violence data, weapons offenses and data from the Snohomish County Jail.

During the past several years, the world has continued to evolve, becoming more digitalized and making information instantly accessible online. The new public facing dashboard is now available on the Sheriff’s Office website and updates each week. Historically, Sheriff’s Office crime data was published at the end of each year.

“In a time when everything is becoming digital, I knew we needed to adapt and create a way to make our crime data available to our community in an easily accessible and timely manner,” said Sheriff Adam Fortney. “I want to thank our crime analysts who have spent endless hours improving our data integrity and developing the crime dashboard. This is one part of a multi-pronged approach using technology advancements to increase transparency and better serve our community.”

The Sheriff’s Office plans to continue expanding the dashboard to include in-depth data from the Snohomish County Jail and the Office of Professional Accountability.
