MACHIAS — A man was arrested Wednesday evening after he allegedly shot at his brother’s car south of Machias, leading to a major police response, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The Monroe man fired the gun around 5 p.m. as his brother and a woman were driving away in the 3500 block of South Machias Road, sheriff’s spokeswoman Courtney O’Keefe said.

No one was hurt, she said.

The suspect, 36, reportedly ran into the woods. Sheriff’s deputies closed down nearby roads as they searched for the man.

Deputies were waiting for him when he emerged from the woods at Dubuque Road before 6 p.m., O’Keefe said.

They arrested him without further incident and booked him into the Snohomish County Jail.
