EVERETT, Wash. -- Police arrested two teenagers this week in an investigation of a downtown Everett gun battle that left a Marysville man dead.
One boy, 16, was arrested and charged this week in juvenile court, the Daily Herald reported. A second suspect, Angel Phoenix, 18, was booked into jail Thursday.
They’re accused of committing an armed robbery April 9 with Tyverius Walburn, 18, who died after the targets of the robbery and his group opened fire, according to police.
Walburn was the 16-year-old boy’s brother.
Gunfire hit cars, a house and nearby business around 2:35 p.m. April 9 near the Everett Public Library.
Walburn died of a gunshot wound to the chest. A second young man suffered bullet wounds to his legs.
According to Everett police, Walburn was part of a group that set up a deal over Snapchat to trade guns in a parking lot. Police believe it was planned as a ripoff and that it was the second time the 16-year-old boy tried to rob a gun from the same under-the-table dealer.
The 16-year-old's bail was set at $25,000.
Bail was set at $250,000 for Phoenix.
In a police interview, Phoenix reportedly denied being part of a plan to commit a robbery on April 9.
