EDMONDS — A Seattle man was shot multiple times Monday night along Highway 99 in Edmonds.
He was listed in stable condition Tuesday morning at a hospital, according to the Edmonds Police Department.
First responders were called to reports of gunshots and people running around 11:30 p.m. Monday near Emerald’s Best Motel, 22201 Highway 99.
They found the wounded man, 24, a few blocks away and took him to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. He was not cooperative, police reported, so a field fingerprint scanner was used to determine his identity. The man had an active warrant for his arrest from the state Department of Corrections for robbery.
The suspected shooter, 34, was also found a few blocks away from the hotel. The man reported to police he had been robbed at gunpoint. Detectives determined the 34-year-old man had been inside a room at the hotel with a gun in violation of a court order.
The 24-year-old allegedly tried to rob the older man at gunpoint but was unsuccessful, police say. The two men left the hotel and ran along Highway 99. Shots were reportedly fired during the chase.
As of Tuesday morning, an investigation into the shooting was active. Detectives were working to determine who shot when and how many bullets were fired.
Anyone with information about the robbery or shooting is asked to contact Edmonds police at 425-407-3999 or email email@example.com.
