For the second time in a week, Everett Police responded to the Casino Road area for a report of shots fired and a teen hit.

This time it happened in front of the Casino Lane apartments in the 800 block of Casino. Everett Police spokesman Aaron Snell tells 9-1-1 began receiving calls of shots fired and possibly someone hit around 12:15 this afternoon.

Arriving officers located a teen who had been shot. He was treated by medics and transported to Providence Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. As a precaution, Horizon Elementary school, which is several blocks east of the scene, was put into a brief lock-down.

Immediately after the shooting a group of people were reported running from the scene. A K-9 was brought in but a track was not successful.

Major Crimes detectives from Everett Police were called to process the scene and interview witnesses. It appeared several shell casings were recovered along with other evidence. No word on the identity of the suspects.

Snell would not speculate if this shooting or the shooting of another teenager last Friday in front of the Bluffs apartments at 2 West Casino Road had any ties to gang activity in south Everett.

    You know how disrespectful and childish and ignorant all of you sound talking about casino rd. Pretty much labeling the people on it as criminals or worthless. Let me tell you from first hand. I used to be on casino rd always hanging with the groups i know all of then i know there story and there struggles. You really think they enjoy doing this ? You kno they are human just like me and you. They feel alone rejected by not only the community but there families as well. Alot of them became addicted to somethings so they wouldnt feel the pain of there lives. Trust me like i said i used to be there right next to every single one of them. I know how it feels and honestly if it wasnt for me having my son I honestly dont think i would be here because of how worthless and no good everyone. The only ones who understood and that where going through the same are the ones you all put down. There not all bad people and they dont plan or want to hurt or distroy the community. None of you know the things that happen at those moments. Nobody knows the feelings each person is having in the situation. You dont know if its fear or pain or betrayal. Nobody knows so nobody should asume or belittle anyone. Like i said not all those people are bad people. If it wasnt for some of them being there for me in my darkest i know i would not be here today and i wouldnt have the amazing son i have. Just wanted to let you all know.

    This is crazyness. Why is casino road the armpit of this community? Why do these things continue to happen?

    How many times has this happened this year?

      There will ALWAYS be crime in the lowest income areas. Quit acting like this is only a local issue.

      • anon Says:

        No S, Sherlock. Did you just figure that out now? My response doesn’t indicate that I was concerned about just the local issues.

        Way to point the obvious.

      • Wa-fix Says:

        Wrong, there doesn’t need to be crime in lower income areas, simply obey the laws rather than abuse them.

    Plow Casino and start over. This entire road is infected yet our mayor is concerned about keeping homeless in Everett rather than preventable crime on Casino Road. Shame.

    • Judy Says:

      It’s easy for you to say plow down Casino because it doesn’t affect you. What about all the families it will misplace. Are you going to open up your pockets or house and help anyone out? I bet not!
