Everett Shooting Victims Not Cooperating

Everett, Police Blotter

Kenwood shooting

Everett Police recovered blood, cellphones, shell casings and bullet fragments from this car.

It’s become almost common lately. A shooting is reported, police respond and the victim refuses to answer investigator’s questions. Those are the circumstances outlined in a recent search warrant affidavit filed by Everett Police following a shooting on Kenwood Drive last week. An Everett Police detective wrote, the victim, who had suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and punctured lung, was a felon with a record of violence who refused to answer questions. The investigation into that case is continuing but others who were thought present at that shooting also are not cooperating with Everett Police.

75th shooting

A look at just some of the evidence markers at the 75th street shooting scene.

On July 26th an 18-year-old was shot near 75th and Lower Ridge Road. His injuries were life-threatening but he has also reportedly provided minimal information to Everett Police.

In both cases nearby property was struck and multiple neighbors were put at risk. While victims may not be talking, likely someone knows something. If that’s you, Everett Police would love a call on their tip line at 425-257-8450.
