EVERETT — A man suspected of shooting and killing a teenager at a Jack in the Box in Everett has been arrested, police said.
The man, 31, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in south Everett. Four men are now in custody in connection with the fatal shooting of Raul Cuadros, 19, of Bothell.
An alleged getaway driver, Raymond Tannehill, 28, of Winthrop, also was arrested Tuesday evening. He has past convictions for unlawful possession of a firearm in Okanogan County. He’s accused of driving two men to a supposed drug deal set up by Christopher Phelps, 28, of Everett. Tannehill knew the men were going to rob the woman in retaliation for an earlier robbery, according to police. He parked nearby.
Phelps apparently did not go to the meeting outside the Jack in the Box at 8520 Evergreen Way. Cuadros and a woman met the two men around 3:40 a.m. Sunday, according to police. Detectives believe the buyers planned to rob the dealer, too. Cuadros brought a gun in his waistband, according to police.
Investigators don’t think Cuadros revealed the weapon.
The woman, 27, recognized one of the men as Kodi Anderson, 27, according to police. She reported Anderson tried to take her purse and followed her as she walked away, so she used pepper spray. At that moment the second man shot Cuadros, killing him, court papers say.
Cuadros died of a gunshot wound to the chest, according to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Anderson, Phelps and Tannehill were behind bars Wednesday. Everett District Court Judge Tam Bui set bail at $1 million for each of them.
They’re being held for investigation of first-degree murder.
The identity of the suspected shooter had not been made public. He is expected to make a first appearance in court Thursday.
Officers arrested Cuadros’ friend as well, for investigation of tampering with evidence.
She reportedly took Cuadros’ gun from his waistband when he was wounded, hiding it in her purse, out of instinct to protect the young man. She was still in jail Wednesday.
