EVERETT — Two people who deputies believe may be responsible for two drive-by shootings in the last two days were booked into the Snohomish County Jail on Saturday.
There have been no known injuries from the shootings.
Deputies got a call shortly after 12:30 p.m. about a red sports car and a green Jeep Cherokee racing each other and exchanging gunfire in the 13500 block of Meadow Road south of Everett, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen.
Deputies found the green Cherokee near 164th Street SW and Cascadian Way, where the driver got out of his car and ran. A deputy chased him through a Christmas tree lot and about 10 backyards, she said.
The suspect threw a handgun and drugs into one of the yards during the chase, which were recovered. The man was finally caught and arrested by Sgt. Rob Beidler a few blocks away.
A pregnant passenger in the car, which had bullet holes in it, was arrested on an outstanding felony drug warrant, Jorgensen said.
Drugs that appeared to be cocaine were found inside the car, Jorgensen said.
Deputies believe the pair may have been involved in a similar incident in Everett Friday night. They had been staying for the last week at a motel on 128th Street SW, Jorgensen said.
The red sports car involved in the shooting was not found.
