Everett teen accused of shooting, wounding friend

EVERETT — A 17-year-old Everett boy is accused of shooting his friend Saturday evening.

The friend, a 20-year-old man, also was armed and suffered only minor injuries, said officer Aaron Snell with the Everett Police Department.

The teenager was booked into the Denney Juvenile Justice Center for investigation of first-degree assault.

The incident was reported about 9:30 p.m. at the teen’s home along Sound Avenue, west of W Mukilteo Boulevard.

The 20-year-old said he had been shot at multiple times inside the home, Snell said. He said he was visiting his friend and fell asleep. He said he woke up and realized his friend had stolen his cash and electronics.

A confrontation ensued.

“Both parties armed themselves and exchanged shots,” Snell said.

The 20-year-old opted to leave at some point, and the door was locked behind him. He then decided to shoot out the lock in an attempt to get back inside, according to police. He was unsuccessful.

He ran from the scene but officers caught up with him. He was detained for questioning and later released.

The 17-year-old refused to come outside, and a SWAT team was called. He surrendered several hours later and was unhurt, Snell said.

Investigators later obtained a judge’s permission to search the property. They seized illegal drugs and multiple firearms, Snell said.

The same house was the location of an invasion robbery May 24. A man at the home was confronted by three men with handguns. They took money.

The invasion investigation also is ongoing, according to police.
