Man dies after confrontation, shooting near Silver Lake

Everett police said he had been yelling and was aggressive toward people on a sidewalk north of the lake.

EVERETT — A man shot in a confrontation near Silver Lake has died.

Police reported the man had been walking his dog around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday when he started to yell and “became aggressive towards people” on the sidewalk around Silver Lake, according to Everett police.

Two of those people were a grandmother and her granddaughter, who were in the 11300 block of 19th Ave SE.

Several men tried to intervene, police said Wednesday. The man used pepper spray on them and struck them with a baton.

One of the other men had a pistol. He shot the alleged aggressor twice, police said.

The wounded man was rushed to a local hospital, where he later died. He had not been identified publicly Wednesday. He was in his early 30s, police said.

Police spoke with “numerous” witnesses at the scene. Officers detained the shooter, who cooperated with them. He was not arrested.

The official cause and manner of death will be determined by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Everett Animal Control secured the deceased man’s dog for safekeeping.

Tips can be directed to Everett police at 425-257-8450.
