Man held on suspicion of drive-by shooting in Everett

EVERETT — Police have arrested an Everett man in connection with a drive-by shooting Wednesday night near Madison Street and Olympic Drive.

A Lynnwood man reported that someone shot at his BMW, hitting it several times. He told police the suspects flashed gang signs at him before the shooting. Everett police arrested the alleged driver of the car the gunfire came from, but it was unclear Thursday if they had caught up with the shooter. There were no reports of serious injuries.

The suspect made a brief court appearance from jail Thursday. He was ordered held on $50,000 bail.

The victim told police he and some friends had stopped at KushMart, a marijuana shop on Evergreen Way. He said as he and his friends were leaving, another group gave him “a weird stare,” according to a police affidavit.

The suspect vehicle allegedly followed the victim, who attempted to evade the car. The suspect vehicle pulled up next to the man’s car and blocked it. The victim reported that someone inside the car opened fire. The suspects sped off but the Lynnwood man followed. He reported seeing three occupants in the suspect’s vehicle jump out near the Everett Golf and Country Club.

As they exited the car, another shot was fired, hitting the tire of the suspect’s vehicle, Everett police officer Aaron Snell said.

The victim continued to follow the suspect’s car to Popeye’s on Evergreen Way. The driver ran but was chased down by the victim and his friends.

The suspect, 22, told police he was driving but someone in the back seat had fired the shots. He was booked for investigation of drive-by shooting.
