Just after 8:00 p.m. last night, officers were dispatched to the Cascadia Pointe Apartments (8710 5th Ave W) on the report of multiple shots being heard. Arriving officers located a 17- year-old male near the entrance who had been shot. Officers immediately rendered aid and the teenager was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett where he is in stable condition. Major Crimes Unit detectives responded to investigate and were told the teenager did not know who shot him or why, but the suspect(s) left the area in a vehicle. Several bullet holes were located in a nearby apartment building and residents were contacted to ensure there were no additional injuries. 5th Ave W was closed during the investigation but later opened for normal traffic.
