Suspect in Everett shooting out of hospital and in jail

EVERETT — A man suspected of opening fire in an Everett home just before Thanksgiving was booked into jail Wednesday after recovering from gunshot wounds he received during the incident.

Police say the 23-year-old man kicked in the door to a house in the 600 block of 93rd Street SW in Everett, stepped into the room and began firing at a man inside.

The man, 23, grabbed his own gun, a .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol, from under his pillow and fired back.

The suspect was hit twice and fell backward out of the room.

He and possibly one or more additional suspects continued to fire into the victim’s bedroom, according to a police affidavit filed Thursday in Everett District Court. The suspect fled the house.

Police found a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun and a large amount of blood inside the house.

Officers also recovered multiple shell casings on the living room floor. Numerous bullet holes were found in the victim’s bedroom.

A police dog tracked the gunman to some bushes in a neighboring yard. The man had gunshot wounds to his leg and stomach.

The victim was shot in the ear, left thigh and left calf and rushed to a hospital.

The suspect was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He recovered enough to be booked Wednesday in the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree assault and burglary.

Investigators believe he may have been assisted by at least one other person, who has yet to be identified.

Detectives believe the men knew each other. The motive for the shooting was not detailed in the affidavit.
