Police: Snohomish man fled to Oregon after Arlington shooting

The wounded man, 30, was left in critical condition. The suspect, 39, was arrested for investigation of first-degree assault.

ARLINGTON — A Snohomish man turned himself in to police after fleeing the state following a shooting Tuesday near an Arlington bar that left a man in critical condition, authorities said.

On Tuesday night at the Krosswalk Pub, two men and a woman were playing pool, surveillance video reportedly shows. A man, who the trio didn’t know, came up to them and was “acting weird,” the woman told police. At one point, one of the men in the group fought the stranger.

Staff at the bar in the 300 block of Olympic Avenue had to walk the stranger out of the bar a couple times, according to an Arlington police report. When one of the men walked out, the stranger reportedly punched him in the face, knocking him unconscious.

The other man in the trio, 39, then left the bar and began to fight with the stranger, a witness told investigators. During the fight, the 39-year-old man reportedly made comments about having a gun. The stranger, 30, got away. The other man, of Snohomish, went after him in his truck.

Moments later, witnesses heard a gunshot, according to the police report.

Police found the stranger, from Edmonds, in the 500 block of McLeod Avenue. He was rushed to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett in critical condition. Officers later learned the wounded man might not live because the bullet struck several arteries, so he’d need multiple surgeries, according to court papers.

Detectives decided the Snohomish man was the suspect in the shooting. They learned he had two handguns registered in his name, according to the police report.

They looked for the suspect on Camano Island, Arlington and Snohomish, but couldn’t find him, court papers say.

Phone records obtained via search warrant reportedly showed he was in Oregon. Then, it appeared the phone either died or was shut off.

On Thursday afternoon, an Everett-based defense attorney called police, according to court documents. She told detectives she was representing the suspect. He wanted to turn himself in.

At 10 p.m. that night, the suspect surrendered to police. He declined an interview with detectives about the events. He was arrested for investigation of first-degree assault.

On Friday, the Snohomish man remained in the Snohomish County Jail with bail set at $500,000.
