One dead in overnight shooting in Everett

EVERETT -- Police detectives are investigating a fatal shooting that left a man dead late Sunday.

Just before 11:45 p.m. , officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 4100 block of Colby Ave. When officers arrived, they found an adult male had been fatally shot inside a residence. They searched the area but no suspects were found.

Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit responded to the scene to interview possible witnesses and process evidence at the scene. At this time, the reason for the shooting is unknown -- as is the identity of anyone involved.

As detectives conclude their on scene investigation, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will take custody of the deceased to determine cause and manner of death and will also establish identity.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
