EVERETT, Wash. - Everett police have a suspect in custody after a shooting near Hewitt Avenue and Nassau Street.
The shooting occurred around 2:40 a.m. Saturday. One victim was shot in the back and transported to Providence Medical Center Colby Campus.
Police don’t know the victim’s condition at this time.
This all started as a physical fight. Police said the suspect left the fight to go get a gun and then came back.
At first, police thought a second person had been hit but that turned out to be false.
Also, there were initial reports that the shooting was a drive-by. It turns out, the suspect fired from outside a car and then drove away after the shooting, police said.
Police located the suspect in the 1700 block of Puget Drive around 4:00 a.m.
Police said the victim was somehow involved in the earlier fight but they’re still investigating exactly what led up to the shooting.
