Outside sceneOne man was hit and a suspect taken into custody after multiple gunshots were fired outside of 1805 Tailgators Bar on Hewitt early Sunday morning. Everett Police Lt.

He was suffering from non-life-threatening wounds and was taken by aid car to an Everett Hospital. Just down the street other arriving officers found a male suspect in his 30s and took him into custody. Olafson says officers did recover a gun and initial reports are that the victim was hit by random gunfire and not specifically targeted.

    I just want to be clear that this shooting was also outside of Comcast Arena, the Klothing Vault, and a Housing Hope establishment. 1805 Tailgator’s had been closed for some time when the shooting occured. Some of the last patrons to leave were some local firefighters who made a surprise visit…with bagpipes and all!
