Police: Woman killed in home invasion near Everett

A man and child in the home were not injured. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office reported there were three assailants.

EVERETT — A woman in her 30s was shot and killed in an apparent home invasion south of Everett around 3 a.m. Friday, police said.

The woman was in her bedroom in the 2600 block of 96th Street SE, at home with her husband and child, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. Shortly after the shooting, three intruders left the home, sheriff’s spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe said. There appeared to be no struggle or fight before or after the gunfire.

Deputies were searching for three suspects, who reportedly fled the home on foot. Two were described as wearing masks, another with face paint. All three wore black clothes.

No arrests had been made Friday afternoon. Police gave no sense of a motive for the killing Friday.

The man and the child in the home were uninjured, according to the sheriff’s office.

The man ran to the home of a neighbor, who called 911.

Detectives continued to investigate and review security footage in an effort to identify the assailants. A trail on 27th Street SE was cordoned off with police tape Friday afternoon, as deputies searched the area with a dog.

Anyone with information was asked to call 911. Specifically, the sheriff’s office asked neighbors to check their cameras for any activity around 3 a.m.
