CONTACT:  Shari Ireton, Director of Communications, Snohomish County Sheriff’s, 425-388-3377, Media line: 425-249-6263
SNOHOMISH, Wash. – A 45 year-old Snohomish woman was shot in her residence at the 15600 block of 59th Dr SE tonight during what Sheriff's Office deputies believe may have been a domestic violence dispute.  A call was made to 911 around 9 p.m. by a male who said someone was hurt in the residence and to "just send the Sheriff quickly".  When patrol arrived on scene they found an unconscious adult woman with gunshot wounds.  Aid on scene began administering CPR. A 49 year-old male at the scene, believed to be the woman's husband, was taken into custody without incident.  Major Crimes detectives will investigate the shooting, but at this time there is no evidence that any other suspect(s) was involved in the incident and the lone shooter is in custody. No further information is available at this time.
