The victim reportedly had an altercation with people in the vehicle before he was struck.

EVERETT — A driver intentionally struck and killed a pedestrian in Everett on Friday night, police say.

The victim, a man in his 30s, was hit in the 2900 block of 12th Street, after having a confrontation with the people in the vehicle, Everett Police Deputy Chief John DeRousse said. They apparently had a history of altercations, he said.

Everett police responded to the scene at 10:25 p.m. The victim was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, where he later died from his injuries.

Police identified a suspect after talking to witnesses and searching the area. They found him at 4:30 a.m. Saturday in the 1900 block of Baker Avenue in Everett.

The man, in his 20s, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree murder, vehicular homicide and hit-and-run fatality. His car was impounded for investigation.

Another man was arrested for allegedly lying to police about the suspect’s location.

Identification of the victim, as well as cause and manner of death, will be determined by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Detectives with the Traffic Safety Unit are looking for more information. Tips can be directed to 425-257-8450.
