MARYSVILLE — Police are searching for a second suspect after a man was found dead near a Marysville gas station early Sunday.
Marysville Police Department detectives are also still looking for Lyon Nicholas “Nick” Torns, 36. He is considered armed and dangerous. Both suspects are still at large, although police have found a black Nissan Altima associated with Torns.
“It is our hope, and in the best interest and safety of all involved, that Nick Torns turns himself in to police,” Detective Sgt. Jim Maples said in a statement. “We know he has a story to tell, and we would like to hear it.”
Around 3 a.m. Sunday, police responded to reports of gunshots near a gas station along 88th Street NE, across the street from Haggen and Chick-fil-A. They didn’t find anything and departed.
A woman called about an hour later. She had found her husband’s vehicle at the gas station.
“She saw a male that she knew as ‘Nick’ walk out of the bushes and get into her husband’s vehicle,” a new release said. “She tried to stop the vehicle, but Nick drove away.”
It’s not clear how the woman knows Torns. Police found her husband’s body in the bushes behind the gas station soon after, Sgt. Pete Shove said. The man, 42, had multiple gunshot wounds.
Security footage showed the second suspect at the scene that night. It is unknown if he is armed, but he should be considered dangerous, Marysville police said.
The only information police have about him is from the video, Shove said. It shows him getting into the passenger side of a car. If you believe you can identify the person, call 911 and ask to speak with a Marysville detective.
