Several neighbor’s cars were stuck until police could process the crime scene.

It was a rude awakening for residents of one west central Everett neighborhood today.

Around 4:15 this morning there were reports of gunshots and a car crash in the 6000 block of Kenwood Drive. Power was also out in the area.

Everett police responded and found a full size Chevrolet had gone out of control, run over a power box and smashed into a car.

There was blood and broken glass in the street and evidence of gunfire. Vehicles had been reported speeding away from the neighborhood and police had stopped an SUV blocks away.

The one thing missing was a victim. About 15 minutes later, Providence Regional Medical Center on Colby reported a man had been dropped off with a gunshot wound.

Patrol officers have taped off a large portion of the neighborhood, the PUD was called to work on the power outage and Major Crimes detectives from the Everett Police Department are now on scene trying to determine exactly what happened.

So far no arrests and no word on the victim. We’ll let you know more as information becomes available.

Here are a few photos from the scene.

    a lot of people here are saying gang bangers and random shootings, but i live in this neighborhood, it wasnt random.

    the man knew the people he shot at. we still dont know WHY he did, but hes been here often before. and this particular neighborhood has never had ANYTHING happen the 14 years ive been here, its very quiet and safe. needless to say it scared us all.

      This was definitely NOT random!

      I live in this neighborhood as well (10 years) and nothing of this magnitude has ever happened. It goes to show one bad person moves in, they bring their bad friends, and a neighborhood with 20 plus kids in one block gets shot up.

      Thank goodness no one innocent got hurt. The supposed “victim” is just as much a criminal as the person that shot him.

      I am really pissed about the damage every neighbor is dealing with. Multiple transformers blew due to this car hitting the power box. This in turn caused power surges completely frying modems, computers, coffee pots, alarm clocks, DVD players and who knows what else I and others haven’t came across yet. All of this is in addition to bullet hole after bullet hole neighbors found in their cars.

      My child is completely scared to go outside out of fear no one has been arrested and they can come back at anytime. So the damage is more than materialistic.

      This was not just a disturbance in the wee morning hours.
