Everett Police say one person is dead, another has been injured and detectives are talking with multiple people following a shooting this afternoon in downtown Everett.

Everett Police Public Information Officer Aaron Snell tells MyEverettNews.com that about 2:40 PM officers were called to the area of Everett and Rucker Avenues for a report of shots fired.

At about the same time officers were told of a possible shooting at the Emergency Room at Providence Regional Medical Center on 13th street.

Officers from around the area raced to the hospital and it was quickly determined there was not a shooting at that location but two victims with gunshot wounds were brought there. It was thought whoever brought the victims fled from the hospital on foot.

A search was begun with officers from Marysville, the Sheriff’s office and even Mukilteo police assisting Everett PD.

Everett Community College was locked down as a precaution as officers searched the neighborhood.

Meanwhile back at the scene of the first report of shots fired, Everett Police blocked off the area and began talking to witnesses.

Multiple shots were fired and bullet holes were found in a house south of the parking lot at Everett and Rucker and at least two bullets were found through windows of the old Herald newspaper offices more than a block away from the shooting scene.

Tonight there are few details available about the shooting as detectives try to piece together what happened.

They do know one person is dead, another is suffering from a gunshot wound that is not considered life threatening.

Snell says Everett Police do not believe the general public at large is in danger though they are still trying to determine all of the circumstances and the people involved.
