Everett triple shooting suspect arrested, tied to 2nd shooting

Police believe Shayne Baker, 25, killed Anthony Burnett and Anthony Jolly and injured another man Monday afternoon.

EVERETT — Police believe an Everett man accused of killing two and injuring another Monday on Lexington Avenue was responsible for another shooting the day before.

At a brief court appearance Wednesday, Everett District Court Judge Tam Bui found probable cause for two counts of second-degree murder and one count of first-degree assault against Shayne Baker, 25, of Everett. At the request of prosecutors, she set bail at $5 million.

Around 9 a.m. Sunday, a man was shot near the intersection of 43rd Street and Colby Avenue. The suspect, later identified as Baker, fled south on Colby in a dark blue Chevy pickup with no front license plate, according to police.

The wounded man in his 30s had been shot multiple times, including once in the chest, police said. At one point, paramedics revived him. He was taken to the hospital, where he remained in “stable, but critical condition” Tuesday, according to the police report.

Police found several .45-caliber bullet casings at the Colby scene. Security footage reportedly shows the Chevy pickup, with chrome wheels and a temporary license plate in the back window, coming from the north before the shooting, then fleeing south at a high rate of speed.

Police didn’t find Baker that day.

Just before 4 p.m. Monday, three men were shot in a house in the 2000 block of Lexington Avenue, about 1½ miles south of the Sunday shooting. Once again, security footage showed a blue pickup fleeing south, according to court documents.

When officers arrived, they discovered the bodies of Anthony Burnett, 48, and Anthony Jolly, 44, both of Everett, with gunshot wounds to their heads. A third man suffered a grazing gunshot wound to the side of his head. He was taken to the hospital and has since been released, Everett police officer Kerby Duncan said.

In a police interview, the surviving victim identified the shooter as a man named “Shane,” who he said had been at the house with a blue pickup. At some point, the victim said he became concerned that the truck was stolen and wanted it gone. When the men began to question Baker, he pulled out a pistol and started shooting, police allege. Officers later found multiple .45-caliber casings in the living room.

A witness described the gunman as looking “like Ashton Kutcher” and said he’d been wearing dark brown, ankle-high cowboy boots.

Around 2 p.m. Tuesday, officers found Baker in the truck in the 2600 block of Broadway. An officer noted he was wearing boots matching the ones reported.

Baker agreed to a police interview. He reported purchasing the truck from an unknown person for $200 without a bill of sale. He noted he’d had the truck less than two days, according to the police report.

When officers told the suspected gunman they had surveillance footage near the house, he reportedly asked for an attorney.

On June 14, the Chevy pickup had been reported stolen out of Pierce County, a record check reportedly showed. Police searched the truck and found a Glock and a .45-caliber pistol under the driver’s seat. The pistol was reported stolen earlier this month in Everett during a vehicle prowl, according to police.

Last month, Thurston County prosecutors charged Baker with possession of a stolen vehicle, a felony. A warrant in that ongoing case was issued last week.

Baker was twice convicted of crimes as a juvenile, according to court records, one for felony reckless burning and another for being a minor intoxicated in public, a misdemeanor.

Records show he had been booked into the Snohomish County Jail twice in the past two months on court orders.
