Everett Police: Suspect in custody for shooting charged with 2nd shooting

A suspect already in Everett Police custody for a shooting has been charged in connection to another shooting just a day prior.

The suspect, who has not been identified by authorities, has been in the Snohomish County Jail since his arrest on Dec. 15, 2022, in connection to a shooting near 37th and Smith Ave in Everett. He is being held on charges of first-degree assault, first-degree attempted assault and first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.

However, Major Crimes detectives have found probable cause to now charge him for a separate shooting on Dec. 14 near Horizon Elementary School.

Both incidents were part of a 24-hour ‘surge of violence’ Everett Police were investigating.
