Shooting suspect in Everett surrenders after 6-hour SWAT standoff

EVERETT — A six-hour SWAT stand-off ended peacefully Tuesday morning after deputies tracked down a suspect accused of shooting a man and assaulting another victim Monday night south of Everett.

The shooting and assault were reported around 6 p.m. Monday in the 1400 block of Center Road.

A man was shot in the leg and transported to the hospital. His injuries were not considered life threatening, said sheriff’s Lt. Norm Link.

Another person had a head injury, he said. That victim’s gender was not immediately available.

Deputies tracked the 24-year-old suspect to a home in the 11000 block of Meridian Avenue after midnight. He was inside with other people, including two children.

Six hours later, everyone inside the house was able to leave and the suspect gave up shortly afterward.

He will be booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

It was not immediately clear what led up to the shooting.
