EDMONDS—Edmonds Police have arrested two adults and are seeking a third after a three-week spree of incidents including a drive-by-shooting along Olympic View Drive.

On June 27, those subjects were booked into the Snohomish County Jail for Drive-by Shooting while detectives continued their investigation into others who may be involved. Arrested were a 37-year-old male and a 26-year-old male, both from Lynnwood.

Beginning in early June, there were repeated calls from community members regarding the sounds of gunshots in the area around the 8100 block of Olympic View Drive. Most of the calls came in the late evening and overnight hours. In some instances, investigating officers were able to recover evidence showing multiple different weapons were being fired. Trees and a stop sign were shot, but there were no instances of injury.

Then, on June 24, a resident called to report that a gunshot had entered their home. During this time frame, officers had been proactively surveilling the area but could not catch the suspect(s) in the act or identify a suspect vehicle.

On June 27, multiple officers established dedicated surveillance and saw a vehicle enter the area, followed shortly by the sound of multiple gunshots. Officers quickly found evidence to support drive-by-shooting.

The suspect vehicle was found unoccupied in the residential neighborhood. Following an extensive search, two suspects were located with the assistance of K9 units from Edmonds and Everett, King County’s Guardian One helicopter, and a drone unit. A handgun was also recovered during the arrest.   

A search warrant was served on the suspect vehicle, and additional items of evidence were recovered, including multiple rounds of live ammunition and several spent shell casings.

This investigation is active and ongoing, and EPD detectives are following up on the information and evidence collected. Additional arrests are expected to be made.
