EDMONDS POLICE DEPARTMENT | Last Updated: February 21, 2020

A customer entering the 7-11 Store at 8101 238th, ST SW this morning made a horrific discovery. The store clerk was laying on the floor, unresponsive and bleeding. That customer called 911 at 5:03 am. When Edmonds Police units arrived at the store, they discovered the clerk, a 64-year old man from Edmonds was deceased from an apparent gunshot wound.

Police units from all over Snohomish County, King County and the Washington State Patrol responded to the area a.s a K9 track was conducted to try and locate a suspect. The track was unsuccessful.

Our Detective Unit was called to the scene and will be there for several hours collecting evidence. One key piece of evidence has already been recovered the store video of the incident.

We are releasing a still photograph from that video in hopes of identifying the suspect. He is a white male, possibly in his 20’s. He is seen wearing black shoes, black pants and a red and black jacket. The hood of the jacket was up and his face was covered when he entered the store.
