Teen, 15, arrested after gunfire at Mariner High School

Police say he fired shots at a car in the school parking lot this week. No one was hurt.


EVERETT — A 15-year-old boy is being investigated for gunfire this week in an incident at the Mariner High School parking lot in which no one was injured.

Around 3:10 p.m. Monday, after school was dismissed, the teen shot at a car in the parking lot south of Everett before running away, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. The school was put on lockdown for less than an hour during after-school activities.

The teen ran away. A police dog did not find him. Later, deputies found the car he shot at with two juveniles inside. Both were uncooperative, according to the sheriff’s office. The car had a bullet hole and was seized for evidence.

On Tuesday, deputies arrested the 15-year-old for investigation of unlawful possession of a firearm, disturbing school activity and possession of a dangerous weapon on school property.

The next day, Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Janice Ellis found probable cause for the charges and set bail at $250. The teen posted bail that day and was released from Denney Juvenile Justice Center.

Previously, in 2020, Snohomish County prosecutors charged the 15-year-old with two counts of felony firearm theft. He pleaded guilty and the sentence was deferred.
