Everett, Police Blotter

Editor’s Update 7:50 PM: Here is an update from Everett Police on the two shootings in south Everett earlier today…
Two unrelated shootings occurred in Everett within a short time and distance of each other this afternoon.
At about 2:00 p.m. this afternoon, officers were dispatched to the report of an owner finding his stolen vehicle, a Dodge Ram, behind the buildings at 9615 Holly Dr. As officers were dispatched, additional reports indicated the situation escalated and a shot was heard. Arriving officers were told that when the owner confronted a male inside the stolen vehicle, the male ran and was shot by the owner.
The injured 27 year-old male, a Seattle resident, was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett for what are non-life threatening injuries. He was released from the hospital and booked into Snohomish County Jail on possession of a stolen vehicle.
The owner, a 29 year-old Everett man, was detained at the scene. The initial investigation indicates the owner called 911 to report his vehicle stolen prior to finding it on Holly Dr.
Major Crimes detectives continue their investigation and recovered the weapon.

At about 3:00 p.m. this afternoon, officers near the 7-11 at 10117 Evergreen Way were flagged down when witnesses heard a gunshot. They arrived in the parking lot and found an injured male. The male sustained a gunshot wound and was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett for what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

During the investigation it was determined a group of four arrived at the 7-11 in a stolen vehicle where a verbal altercation turned physical against the male in a group of three. When the male was assaulted, his girlfriend retrieved a gun and demanded the fighting stop. When it didn’t, she shot and injured a man assaulting her boyfriend.
It was determined the four in the larger group were aggressors in the assault. Three were arrested (34, 31, and 30 years-old) and the fourth, a 31 year-old Snohomish resident, will be referred for charges when he is released from the hospital.
The boyfriend, a 29 year-old Everett resident, was treated at the scene while the investigation continues into the actions of his 22 year-old girlfriend.
The stolen vehicle, a red Ford Mustang, was recovered.

Original Post: Everett Police are investigating two unrelated shootings in south Everett this afternoon.

Around 2:30 PM a man reportedly saw someone in his pickup that he says was stolen. This was at an apartment house on Holly Drive behind Glacier Lanes.

There was a confrontation between the two and the owner of the truck reportedly shot the other man.

Here is Aaron Snell with what Everett Police know so far…


A woman is placed in the back of an Everett Police SUV while officers try to figure out exactly who did what in this shooting.

About 45 minutes later there was another shooting. This happened in the parking lot of the 7-11 store in the 10100 block of Evergreen Way. That situation is much more complicated.

Everett Police Spokesman Aaron Snell tells MyEverettNews.com that two groups of people were arguing in the parking lot and things turned into a fight.

At one point a person was sprayed with mace and at another point a woman shot a man.

That woman has been detained by Everett Police and a gun was recovered at the scene.

The man who had been shot was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center.

Police are still trying to sort out all of the details.

In both cases the shooting victims are expected to survive. Both cases are under active investigation.
