EVERETT, Wash. – A 19 year-old Everett man has been arrested for 2nd degree murder and is suspected of shooting and killing a 22 year-old Lynnwood man last Saturday night.  The suspect admitted to being at the location where the vehicle used in the crime had been abandoned.

Following up on leads and witness interviews related to the homicide, detectives now believe there were only two occupants in the suspect vehicle, a female driver and the suspect.  It is believed that the suspect, who was in the passenger seat, fired a single shot through the closed window, striking and killing the victim at the 16100 block of Ash Way in Lynnwood.  The driver and suspect fled the scene and abandoned the vehicle at a gas station at the corner of Rucker and 41st Ave in Everett.

Detectives believe that they have located all suspects related to the incident and that the male is the lone shooter.

Identification of the decedent is pending from the Snohomish County Medical Examiner.
