LYNNWOOD — A Lynnwood woman shot to death in a home invasion has been identified.
Just before 7 a.m. Aug. 10, Gilbert “Alex” Escamilla allegedly forced his way into the home of a Lynnwood couple at 164th Street SW and 48th Place W, according to a police report.
Escamilla had reportedly just fled the scene of another deadly shooting 25 miles north in Marysville, where police believe he shot a man in the head outside an apartment complex. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office had not publicly identified the man as of this week.
A woman inside the Lynnwood house called 911, reporting in broken English that a man with a gun was fighting with her husband, detectives wrote. First responders arrived to find the husband’s mother, Tatyana Voynova, in the living room with a fatal gunshot to the head. She was 68.
The medical examiner’s office determined the cause of death was gunshot wounds. The manner of death was homicide.
In nearby bedrooms, Julia Altulhova and and Alexey Altukhov were critically wounded. Two children also in the home were uninjured. The husband and wife were rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, according to police.
An online fundraiser for the family has since raised over $125,000, with over 1,400 people donating.
Altulhova remained in serious condition as of Wednesday, while Altukhov had been released from the hospital, according to a Harborview spokesperson.
The suspect allegedly escaped in the family’s car, but deputies arrested him shortly afterwards near Norma Beach Road.
A day after the shootings, prosecutors sought probable cause to hold Escamilla for one count of first-degree murder, one count of second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault and one count of first-degree burglary.
Everett District Court Judge Tam Bui found probable cause for all counts and set bail for Escamilla at $5 million. On Wednesday, he remained in Snohomish County Jail.
