EVERETT — A Mountlake Terrace man was apparently shot after a crash Sunday evening just south of Everett, but he’s not cooperating with investigators, deputies said.
Witnesses in the 12600 block of Eighth Avenue W said they heard multiple gunshots after two vehicles collided there just after 7 p.m., according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
Several people were seen running from the scene, in a neighborhood a few blocks southwest of Mariner High School.
Sheriff’s deputies encountered the wounded man, 21, a few minutes later on nearby Fourth Avenue W. His wound did not appear to be life-threatening. He was transported to a hospital and was not cooperating with the investigation, the sheriff’s office said.
A police dog searched the neighborhood for suspects.
Deputies believe the shooting was gang-related.
