2 people shot at Everett house party are expected to survive

Police have no information about potential suspects after the incident on Chestnut Street.

EVERETT — Two young people are expected to survive after being shot early Sunday at a house party on Chestnut Street.

Neighbors called 911 about 12:30 a.m., Everett police officer Aaron Snell said. The party was in the 2600 block.

A 20-year-old woman and 16-year-old boy were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. They traveled there with others from the party, in two separate vehicles, Snell said.

“We searched the house,” he said. “There were no additional victims.”

No additional information was provided Sunday. Police initially reported that the injured people were both minors but later clarified.

On April 8, two men were shot outside a house party on Oakes Avenue. That incident also was in the 2600 block, about a mile from Chestnut Street. There was no known link between the two incidents, Snell said.
