2 found dead in Mountlake Terrace park

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — Two people were found dead in a car Wednesday in a Mountlake Terrace park.

The man and woman both had apparent gunshot wounds, Assistant Police Chief Pete Caw said. Their bodies were found inside a car at Terrace Creek Park, also known as Candy Cane Park, about 5 p.m.

As of 8 p.m. Wednesday, detectives were waiting to obtain a judge’s permission to search the car for potential evidence.

Officials did not believe there was an outstanding suspect in the shooting, but “we’re really early in our investigation still,” Caw said.

No additional details have been made public.
