MARYSVILLE — Police are seeking a suspect in the death of a Marysville man found apparently shot to death Sunday morning.

Around 3 a.m. Sunday, Marysville police responded to a report of gunshots near the gas station at 3506 88th St. NE, but didn’t find anyone. A woman called police after she found her husband’s vehicle there about an hour later. When officers returned they found the victim, 42, dead with several gunshot wounds in bushes behind the gas station, according to the Marysville Police Department.

The woman reportedly earlier saw a man she knew come out of those bushes and drive away in her husband’s vehicle.
