[ARCHIVED] Shooting in Marysville results in homicide

Shortly after 5:00 pm, Marysville Officers responded to the 500 block of State Ave on a report of a male brandishing a firearm. Patrol officers learned that two individuals, who had just gotten off a Community Transit bus, exchanged words when one of them pulled a handgun and brandished it. A search of the area by officers, including a K9 track, was unsuccessful in locating the suspect. Less than 10 minutes after that search, Marysville Police began receiving calls of a shooting in the 4500 block of 73rd Pl NE, about 12 blocks to the northeast of the original brandishing call.

When officers arrived on 73rd Pl NE, they contacted a 59-year-old male who was sitting on the curb. A handgun was recovered nearby. That suspect was taken into custody without incident. At this time, it appears the suspect is not a resident of Marysville.

A 59-year-old male victim was deceased in a nearby yard.  While the cause of death is still under investigation, the male victim who lived on 73rd PL NE, suffered from multiple gunshot wounds.

“It is still very early in the investigation. Motive for the shooting, and any relationship between the suspect and victim are still under investigation,” Said Cmdr. Mark Thomas.

Marysville Officers have confirmed that the suspect in the original brandishing of the firearm call, (in the 500 block of State Ave.), is the same suspect in the shooting, but the victim of the brandishing is not involved in the shooting, and was not near the shooting location.

The suspect will be booked into the Snohomish County Jail on one count of Murder in the second degree, and one count of Assault in the first degree. Any potential additional charges are part of the ongoing investigation.
