EVERETT — A man in his 20s died in a stabbing Tuesday morning in Everett, police say.

A woman in her late teens was also seriously injured at an apartment in the 3100 block of Oakes Avenue around 10:20 a.m., officer Kerby Duncan said. She was taken to a hospital. The man was found dead in the apartment.

The suspect, a man in his 20s, ran away, according to police. Police dogs searched the area, but didn’t find him. People who knew the suspect suggested places he might have gone. Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies found him Tuesday afternoon at a home near Lynnwood, according to a news release.

The man reportedly refused to come out at first, but eventually surrendered to deputies.

The suspect and the victims lived together at the Oakes Avenue apartment with a few others, Duncan said. An argument Tuesday morning reportedly escalated into the stabbing.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will identify the deceased man as well as determine his cause and manner of death.

Anyone with information about the incident can contact the Everett police tip line at 425-257-8450.
