Teen in critical condition after apparent road-rage shooting

EVERETT — Gunfire left a 16-year-old boy in critical condition Monday afternoon in Everett.

The shooting near the 8000 block of Beverly Boulevard may have been the violent end to a case of road rage, according to Everett police.

Shortly before 3:45 p.m., a 911 caller reported a road rage incident involving two vehicles — a white SUV or truck and a black Honda Civic — near the intersection of Casino Road and Evergreen Way.

A few minutes later, police received several reports of gunfire about one mile away on Beverly Boulevard. Witnesses described two vehicles similar in appearance to those reportedly involved in the road rage, Everett Police officer Aaron Snell said.

Both vehicles were gone by the time officers arrived. They collected shell casings from the street. Snell said he did not know if just one or multiple guns were used. Police are not saying how many shots were fired.

A black Honda dropped off a teenager with a gunshot wound at Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.

Detectives are seeking information on the shooting and the vehicles involved. Anyone with information can call the Everett Police Department’s tip line at 425-257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-8477.
