The woman surrendered to officers shortly after 5 PM after an hours-long standoff at an apartment house on Grand Avenue.

A woman is expected to make her first court appearance this afternoon following her arrest Wednesday for suspicion of drive-by-shooting, first degree assault and felony malicious mischief.

According to probable cause paperwork filed by Everett Police, shortly before 9:30 AM Wednesday a woman was arguing with a man in the parking lot of the Safeway store near 110th and 19th Avenue SE in the Silver Lake area of south Everett. The report says the man tried to drive away and the woman pointed a .380 caliber pistol and shot out the rear driver’s side tire of the man’s car.

The man drove north from the store on 19th Avenue SE in the left lane and the woman drove up in the right lane and fired at the man’s car with the bullet striking the passenger door. She then reportedly drove away and the man contacted the police telling officers he thought she was trying to kill him.

Around 10 AM Everett PD patrol officers located the woman’s car at a multi-unit complex on Grand Avenue. They were able to make phone contact with the woman who refused to come out o the unit. For the next 7 hours police worked on de-escalation and shortly after 5 PM the woman came out of the apartment and surrendered to officers. She was booked into the Snohomish County Jail. There were no people physically injured in the incident.
