Everett man killed in Saturday police shooting identified

Charles Hubbard, 58, was shot and killed by SWAT team members when they responded to a domestic violence call.

EVERETT — The man shot and killed by police in south Everett last weekend has been identified as 58-year old Charles Hubbard, according to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Everett police responded to a report of “domestic violence with visible injuries” around 11:20 p.m. March 10, at a home in the 800 block of 91st Place SW, according to a press release from the Skagit-Island Multiple Agency Response Team.

The man inside the house was “looking out the window and not responding,” so police considered him a barricaded suspect, SMART spokesperson Lt. Mike Moore said in a press release. The Snohomish County Region 1 SWAT Team was called in as police tried to negotiate with the man.

Officers reported seeing he was armed with a gun.

Around 1:20 a.m., the team entered the back yard and “gave the suspect verbal commands,” according to the press release. Two SWAT members opened fire. Hubbard died at the scene. According to the official account, he had two handguns on him.

The two officers who fired were an Everett police officer with seven years of service and a Snohomish County deputy with nine years of service. They were both put on paid administrative leave, as is standard. The names of the officers had not yet been released as of Thursday.

A call to Moore’s phone went straight to voicemail Thursday.

The medical examiner’s office released Hubbard’s identity on Thursday and reported the cause of death was gunshot wounds.

It took over two days for police to release basic information about the shooting. Doug Wood, a family friend, said he was frustrated by how slowly police and the media seemed to be notifying the public about what happened.

“Why couldn’t they have shot him with rubber bullets?” Wood asked.

Hubbard grew up in the Everett area and attended Mariner High School, according to his Facebook page. He most recently worked as a concrete delivery driver, said Wood, who met Hubbard roughly 18 years ago in a motorcycle group.

Hubbard was survived by two grown children.

“He was a good father. He was a good brother,” Wood said Thursday. “That’s the person I knew. He was a good man.”
