EVERETT, Wash. – It has been confirmed that the 15 year-old male suspect (not 16 year-old, as previously reported) is the brother of the 11 year-old shooting victim.  The suspect told detectives that he bought the gun from an acquaintance a few months after he was shot last August.  A .38 caliber revolver was recovered from the scene. Whether the suspect’s parents knew that he was in possession of the weapon or not is still under investigation.
