Marysville woman jailed after man shot in Tulalip

Initial reports indicated the 47-year-old shot himself. But people at the scene gave conflicting statements.

TULALIP — Sheriff’s detectives are investigating a suspected homicide on the Tulalip Reservation on Thursday.

Initial reports indicated that a man accidentally shot himself around midnight outside a house in the 700 block of 86th Street NW. The 47-year-old Marysville man suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and died at the scene, a statement from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said.

However, people at the scene reportedly gave conflicting reports about what happened. Detectives determined the death was “suspicious in nature,” according to the sheriff’s office.

A 47-year-old Marysville woman was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree murder. Police found a gun at the scene, sheriff’s spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe said.

Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit were still investigating late Thursday. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner will determine the man’s identity and the cause of his death.
