Everett Police outside the apartment where two people were shot.

Just after midnight on October 17th, officers responded to the 1600 block of 22nd St on the report of a robbery with a weapon and shots being fired inside an apartment. Arriving officers found two adult males – one deceased and the second with a gunshot wound.

The injured male, a 38 year-old Everett man, sustained a gunshot wound to the head and was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett for injuries that are not expected to be life-threatening. On October 19th, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the deceased male as 55 year-old Darren D. Larson of Everett, WA who suffered a gunshot wound to the back.

During the course of their investigation, detectives were told the 38 year-old victim was in his bedroom when a male entered, struck him in the head with a gun, then demanded money and drugs. The 38 year-old gave the suspect the items.

As the suspect left, he was confronted by another roommate. During this interaction, the 38 year-old tried using a stun gun on the suspect but got shot in the head. As the suspect fled the apartment through the front door, he then shot Darren Larson in the back.

Detectives interviewed witnesses and pieced together suspect information for a male and female known to some of the local residents. It is believed the two stole an item from the 38 year-old victim a few days before the shooting.

Witnesses also indicated the male had a gun. Additional information led detectives to a hotel in Seattle where the male and female were taken into custody late Friday night, October 20th.

The male, a 24 year-old transient, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on probable cause for murder and assault.

The female, an 18 year-old, admitted to knowing the male planned to rob the 38 year-old and had obtained a firearm. She was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on probable cause for murder.
