Man angry with co-worker rams truck, shoots him

Herald staff

EVERETT — A Snohomish man was charged Monday with first-degree assault after allegedly driving a forklift into another man’s truck and then shooting him in the shoulder.

The incident occurred Wednesday in the parking lot of a cabinet shop located in the 8300 block of Maltby Road in Maltby.

Brian Walter McGuire, 40, was being held on $100,000 bail after he allegedly attacked the vehicle of a man who currently is dating McGuire’s ex-girlfriend. All three worked in the same cabinet shop, according to charging papers.

Deputy prosecutor Paul Stern said McGuire was upset that the 33-year-old woman is now going out with the co-worker, so he took a forklift and rammed it into the new suitor’s truck.

When the new boyfriend appeared, McGuire pulled a pistol from a backpack and chased him around the parking lot, firing six shots, Stern said.

  • Seven-car I-5 crash: Seven people were treated at Providence Everett Medical Center’s Colby and Pacific campuses Monday and later released after a seven-vehicle crash on I-5 northbound just south of milepost 192, the exit for Broadway, Naval Station Everett and the Port of Everett.

    The crash occurred about 2:45 p.m. when a pickup in the left lane stopped for traffic and was struck from behind by three other vehicles, according to the Washington State Patrol. The driver of a 1990 Jeep Cherokee tried to avoid the first four vehicles and was struck by two other vehicles, the patrol said. The crash blocked one lane.

  • Man robs Pay Day Express: A young white male brandishing a handgun robbed the Pay Day Express Monday afternoon and fled with an undetermined amount of money.

    No shots were fired and no one was injured.

    Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies were called to the 600 block of 91st Street in Everett at 4:51 p.m.

    Deputies and tracking dogs attempted to track the robber but were unsuccessful.

    Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Jan Jorgensen described the suspect as a young white male, about 5 feet 6 inches tall with a slim build. He was wearing a white T-shirt and dark blue or black baggy pants, a red stocking cap and a white handkerchief on the lower portion of his face.

    The robbery was similar to one that occurred approximately one week ago at a store near the intersection of Highway 525 and Highway 99, she said.

    Anyone with information on these robberies is asked to call the sheriff’s department tip line 425-388-3845.


  • Police search for robber: Police on Monday released a composite drawing of a man who robbed the Red Apple Market on U.S. 2 and Old Owen Road on Saturday.

    A man armed with a small, semiautomatic pistol left in an unknown direction with the day’s receipts, police said. A police dog unit performed a track that showed the robber probably fled in a vehicle.

    Police described the robber as a white male in his 30s, about 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-4, thin to medium build, with blue eyes, a pock-marked face, a thin nose and bags under his eyes. He was wearing black jeans, a black coat, a ski hat and a blue scarf around his face. He was carrying a dark gun with a silver top.

    A reward may be available for anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest and conviction. Police ask anyone with information to call 360-793-1051.
