1 man dead, another injured in north Everett shooting

EVERETT — An 18-year-old man was killed Monday and another was injured in a shooting in north Everett.

Two other young men were detained, including the suspected gunman.

Investigators believe the shooting was prompted by a drug deal that went bad, Everett police Sgt. Maryjane Hacker said. It happened around 1:30 a.m. near 23rd Street and Lombard Avenue, which is near Clark Park.

Officers were in the area for an unrelated incident when they heard four or five gunshots, Hacker said. As they headed toward the noise, they came across two men who were running away. Both were detained.

An 18-year-old Everett man approached them. He had gunshot wounds to his shoulder and torso. He was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett and is expected to survive. He is suspected of having gang ties, but the shooting is not believed to be gang-related, Hacker said.

The alleged shooter, a 22-year-old Kenmore man, said he thought he had wounded one other person. A police dog led officers to the body of the other 18-year-old who’d been shot. He was from Everett.

The Kenmore man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on suspicion of marijuana dealing. The other man, 22, of Bothell, was released after questioning.

The death investigation is ongoing, Hacker said. There is no indication the violence was connected to a series of drive-by shootings in Everett in recent weeks, she said.
