Mountlake Terrace shooter at large; man seriously injured

The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the lower back Friday night, near a tree-lighting ceremony.

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — A Mountlake Terrace shooter was at large Saturday, hours after gunfire seriously injured a man in his early 20s.

Officers responded to the gunshots around 7:30 p.m. Friday near 236th Street SW and 49th Place W, not far from an annual tree-lighting festival, Mountlake Terrace Police Chief Pete Caw said.

A dark sedan fled the scene. Surrounding police agencies helped in the search, and Edmonds officers eventually pulled over the car to find a driver and two passengers. One passenger, a man in his early 20s, had been shot in the lower back, according to police.

The car was seized as evidence.

At least six shell casings were recovered at the shooting scene. They appeared to be from a pistol.

Detectives were still investigating conflicting stories about what happened. It’s unclear if there was a single shooter or multiple. No one has been arrested.

The wounded man was at Harborview Medical Center. His condition was serious but stable, Caw said.

Tips can be directed to detective Sgt. Scott King at 425-670-8260. Or call 911.
