2 shot allegedly trying to break into Lynnwood house

LYNNWOOD — Two men were shot Thursday night while they were reportedly trying to force their way into a house near Lynnwood.

A 54-year-old woman and her 21-year-old son were home as the event unfolded about 10 p.m. in the 15800 block of Highway 99.

The son fired the shots, said Shari Ireton, spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. The two men ran away and were later found by police. Both were taken to the hospital. They are believed to be in their 20s.

One was shot in the back, the other was shot in the arm.

One was released Friday and booked into jail on warrants. The other remained hospitalized.

The man who fired the shots was cooperating with police, Ireton said Friday. He was not arrested. The investigation is continuing.
