EVERETT — Police have arrested an attempted murder suspect in connection with a shooting in south Everett.
Around 2 p.m. Tuesday, first responders were called to reports of gunfire at an apartment complex in the 7700 block of Timber Hill Drive, in the Valley View neighborhood.
Paramedics transported a man in his 30s to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. He had suffered critical injuries. He was still alive on life support as of Saturday morning, with slim odds of survival, according to police.
Witnesses on scene told detectives an argument led up to the shooting, according to a press release. Police declined to release information about any relationship between the suspect and the victim.
Everett Police Department issued a notice asking for the public’s help to find the shooter.
The suspect, in his 40s, had been convicted of a series of burglaries in 2017. Court records show he served time in prison and on a lengthy probation.
The Violent Offenders Task Force found the suspect in the 2900 block of Nassau Street on Friday and took him into custody, Duncan told The Daily Herald.
The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail in Everett for investigation of first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and drug possession with intent to deliver.
