Editor’s Update 8:30 AM: Got an update in from Everett Police on the shooting near the Men’s Mission.

Early this morning, a little after midnight, EPD officers responded to the 3700 block of Smith Ave for reports of a male who had been shot.
Upon arrival, officers located a male in his 40’s with a gunshot wound, he was transported to a hospital where he was undergoing surgery for serious, non-life threatening injuries.
The second victim, a male in his 30’s, was nearby when the shooting occurred. He told Police the suspect approached him after he shot the initial victim. He and the suspect got into a physical altercation and he was assaulted.
The suspect then got into a black sedan and fled the scene.
