Everett man shot in both legs over WiFi dispute

The alleged shooter was taken into custody on suspicion of first-degree assault.

EVERETT — A man was shot through his upper legs around 3:45 p.m. Friday allegedly over an argument about a Wi-Fi network, according to police.

A 911 caller reported that the victim was unconscious in a white pickup truck in the middle of 4th Ave. W. near the Glacier Lanes bowling alley. He was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett for treatment.

Once in stable condition, the man, 32, told police that someone called “Pee Wee” had shot him during an argument about a Wi-Fi network.

The man said he saw “Pee Wee” at an apartment complex at 900 W. Casino Road as he drove through the parking lot. That’s where he confronted the man.

Police later identified “Pee Wee” as a 33-year-old Everett man.

A handgun was found inside the alleged shooter’s apartment. Some of the ammunition in the gun matched a cartridge casing found at the shooting scene.

The alleged shooter was taken into custody on suspicion of first-degree assault. He did not want to speak with officers and was booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

At the Everett District Court Monday, he refused to show for his bail hearing.
