$1 million bail for Everett ampm shooting suspect

The suspect, 36, is accused of shooting an acquaintance Monday, dumping the gun in a dumpster and fleeing from police.


EVERETT — A judge set bail at $1 million for an Everett man held in connection with a Monday shooting in the parking lot of a convenience store that left another man in critical condition.

Just after 11:15 a.m. Monday, the suspect, 36, arrived at the ampm store in the 1500 block of 164th Street SW near Mill Creek, according to a Snohomish County detective’s report.

His car, a Subaru Legacy, had two occupants, surveillance video reportedly showed. The driver was wearing a red bandana around his neck, a red sweater or sweatshirt, and tan pants. He had tattoos on both sides of his head.

Both the driver and the passenger got out of the Subaru and talked on the passenger side of the car. At 11:39 a.m., security footage reportedly shows the driver hold up something in his hand, and the other man collapsing.

The footage also shows the driver walk to a nearby dumpster and back to the Subaru, according to a detective’s report. Witnesses reported he threw a gun in the dumpster. There, a deputy later found a revolver wrapped in a black plastic bag, with two bullets and one spent casing, the detective wrote. No casings were found on the ground where the man was allegedly shot.

After tossing the gun, witnesses reported the driver fled in the Subaru.

The wounded man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was treated for a gunshot to the face, according to the detective. His jaw was reportedly shattered and the bullet was lodged in his neck.

He was in critical condition but expected to survive, the detective wrote. Due to his condition, however, deputies couldn’t interview him.

A deputy found the Subaru less than 2 miles north of the scene, going fast on Meadow Road, according to court papers. The deputy gave chase. The driver eventually stopped in the 200 block, got out and ran, according to the detective’s report.

Deputies arrested him with the help of a police dog. Court papers noted he had tattoos on both sides of his head, matching the man seen in the convenience store’s surveillance video.

The man was “extremely wet,” and apparently missing some clothes, the detective wrote. Inside a nearby creek, law enforcement found clothes matching those seen on the man in the security footage. While handcuffed near a patrol vehicle, the suspect again tried to run, according to court papers.

The Everett man has prior felony convictions for burglary, robbery and assault, according to the Snohomish County detective.

The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree assault and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.

He refused to appear at a court hearing Tuesday, but Everett District Court Judge Anthony Howard found probable cause for the charges.
