Officers responded around 3 a.m. to the 11800 block of Airport Road for a report that a man in his 40s had been shot in the head. He was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, where he underwent surgery.
Meanwhile officers “quickly located the male suspect in a nearby business” with the help of a police dog, according to a press release sent out Thursday afternoon by the Everett Police Department.
