MARYSVILLE, Wash., August 10, 2023—Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office and Marysville Police detectives are investigating a series of murders that occurred early morning Thursday, August 10.
Marysville Police Department officers responded to a distress call, regarding a reported shooting, at approximately 4 a.m. Thursday morning at the 2600 block of 164th St. NE in Marysville. Upon arrival, officers discovered a 31-year-old male victim with gunshot wounds. Despite immediate medical attention, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
The suspect, a 31-year-old Marysville man, is also believed to be involved in an unincorporated Edmonds homicide of a woman at approximately 7 a.m. on Thursday, August 10. The investigation of the homicide in Edmonds is being led by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
The early morning unincorporated Edmonds shooting took place at the 16300 block of 48th Place W. There a woman was found dead upon the arrival of officers, and another man and woman were both found with life-threatening gunshot wounds. The two living victims were transported to hospital.
Two young children were also in the home at the time of the shooting. They were uninjured. They were cared for off-site by law enforcement until Child Protective Services responded to assist with temporary placement for the children.
After a car pursuit by officers that ended at Norma Beach Road in Edmonds, the suspect fled on foot and was eventually captured after a K-9 and WSP’s air unit search.
Authorities have confirmed they suspect the same man is connected to both homicides and that there is no ongoing threat to the community related to this incident. Detectives believe the suspect arrived at the location and gained entry into the home before shooting the three adults inside. The suspect then took a vehicle registered to the home and fled from the scene.
As of now, no further details regarding the incident or the individuals involved will be released as this is an active investigation.
