Corrections officer fires shot at Everett man with warrant

No one was hurt around 10 p.m. Tuesday on 75th Street SE, where police were trying to arrest him.

EVERETT — A state Department of Corrections officer fired a gunshot at a man who rammed police with a car Tuesday night in Everett, according to the agency.

No one was hit by gunfire and no one was hurt.

Officers on Everett’s Anti-Crime Team and one corrections officer tried to arrest the man, 28, for a warrant. It happened around 10 p.m. in the 700 block of 75th Street SE.

The man rammed the police vehicles, said Jeremy Barclay, a spokesman for state corrections.

The corrections officer fired a single shot, Barclay said. It hit the man’s car. Afterward, the man was arrested and taken to a local hospital to be checked for injuries.

The corrections officer was put on paid administrative leave, as is standard procedure. Everett detectives were assigned to investigate. The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail around midnight.

He had been serving 18 months on community custody when he failed to report to a probation officer Feb. 20. A warrant was issued to have him arrested.

He also was wanted for skipping court dates in a drug dealing case this month.

Charging papers in that case say police stopped him in the Safeway parking lot off 75th Street SE in October 2017. Inside his Mercedes, police found meth and heroin hidden in a sock. The same corrections officer was part of the arrest team.

At the time of the arrest in 2017, the man had just been released from prison for unlawful possession of a .22-caliber pistol, and he was still on probation.
