Lynnwood police investigating shooting near grocery store

There were no reported injuries and no arrests. Officers were looking for witnesses and tips.

LYNNWOOD — Police are investigating a shooting Saturday night near a grocery store in the 19500 block of Highway 99.

After reports of gunfire around 5:27 p.m. near the Safeway just north of 196th Street SW, police found spent bullet casings in the alley north of the store.

Around the same time and nearby, officers found a crashed Mercedes-Benz C300 sedan with its airbags deployed and no one inside the car, which was running.

Based on witness reports that someone with a gun went into the Safeway, the store was evacuated and several adjacent businesses went into lock-down while officers secured the grocery store, according to the Lynnwood Police Department.

Later, a 20-year-old man reportedly associated with the crashed car who was hiding contacted police officers.

No injuries had been reported with the shooting or crash, and no arrests had been made. Officers were investigating the incidents but believe a security guard and the people associated with the Mercedes-Benz earlier had a confrontation that later resulted in shots fired when they returned to the store.

Anyone with information about this shooting was asked to call 425-670-5623 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
