Police arrest 2 more suspects in Everett motel shooting

Police have released more information about a drug theft during which a man was shot multiple times.

EVERETT — A woman recruited two men to help her break into a motel room to steal drugs and money, leading to a shooting earlier this month that left a man with 24 entry and exit wounds from gunshots, according to police reports released Thursday.

Misty Marie Krum, aka Misty Eggen, was arrested in Seattle this week, according to Everett police. She’s accused of plotting the robbery that nearly killed a man, 39, on May 16 at the Farwest Motel on Evergreen Way.

An alleged accomplice, Devon Skye Evans, 23, was arrested near downtown Everett. Last week police released photos of Evans and Krum and asked the public for tips about their whereabouts. Both were booked into the Snohomish County Jail on Wednesday.

The suspected shooter, 24, of Marysville, was arrested within hours of the attack. He remains behind bars. As of Wednesday, charges had not been filed in Snohomish County Superior Court.

Krum, 28, reportedly told the others that a guest at the motel had her car. She told them he had a lot of money and about 2 kilograms of drugs in his motel room and said they’d get some of the loot, according to court papers.

Around 10:30 a.m., the trio intercepted the motel guest as he walked into his room. The gunman ordered him to get on the floor and told a 20-year-old woman in the room to put her face in a pillow.

“I told you not to (expletive) with me!” Krum shouted, according to court papers. “This is what you get!”

The robbers demanded all of the stuff from the victims. Court papers say Evans searched the room and went through their clothing. The armed man repeatedly pistol-whipped the motel guest. Then he ordered him to go to the bathroom to clean up, but the man wouldn’t go, fearing he’d be shot. Instead, he charged at the gunman, who opened fire, police said.

The man suffered a gunshot to the head, two to the chest, one to the lower abdomen, at least one to the back, a shattered femur and gunshots to his hips and arms. He tried to crawl or roll away, but the shooter “just kept shooting,” according to a report from the woman he was with.

An ambulance rushed the man to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. Once he could talk, he told police Krum was one of the robbers. Security footage showed a woman who looked like Krum leaving the room, with numerous bags that she didn’t have when she arrived.

The suspected shooter later told police he’d hidden in a yard until the resident found him and called 911. A police officer caught him trying to run across a field, with a cast on his leg, around 3 p.m. at Madison Elementary School. The gun had been disassembled and tossed in a bush behind Value Village.

Krum and Evans, meanwhile, were gone. Tips from the public led police to them this week. Everett officer Aaron Snell said that was good detective work.

Bail was set Thursday at $250,000 for Krum and Evans.
