Police Blotter

Editor’s Update 9:15 AM: Here is the official word just out from Aaron Snell with Everett Police.

Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit are investigating a stabbing that killed a man in Everett.

Just after 10:00 p.m. last night, officers responded to a convenience store in the 6900 block of Broadway Ave for an assault with a weapon call. Arriving officers discovered the employee had been stabbed and used K-9’s to search for a possible suspect. During the search, another 911 caller said his roommate just arrived home and stated he had stabbed a man. Officers went to the home and detained the roommate without incident.

At this time, Major Crime’s detectives believe the suspect planned a robbery, but stabbed the employee. As the suspect was getting money, a female entered the business. The suspect grabbed the female and slashed at her, but she fought back. After a struggle, the female escaped and ran outside. The suspect followed, but then ran to his residence where he told his roommate what happened.

The 25 year-old suspect has been booked into the Snohomish County Jail where he will be charged with murder, attempted murder, and two counts of robbery.

The employee, an adult male, died at the scene. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will take custody of the victim to determine cause and manner of death and will provide identity once family has been notified.

Crime scene technicians with the Washington State Patrol are assisting with processing the crime scene.

A horrible crime as a person was brutally murdered during what appeared to be a robbery in central Everett.

Everett Police were called to the Broadway Grocery at the Corner of Broadway and Columbia just south of Madison shortly after 10 PM Monday night.

There they found a victim had apparently been stabbed to death.

Everett Police called in K-9 Units and tracked the suspect to a house about 3 blocks west of the store. They also received tips from area residents on the location of the suspect.

That person was taken into custody without incident.

At this time the investigation is just getting underway.

Crime scene technicians with the Washington State Patrol are assisting Everett Police with processing the crime scene. They are expected to be there most of this morning.

We will provide more information as it becomes available from Everett Police.
