Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputies took a 22-year-old Seattle man into custody just before midnight on Friday in connection with the shooting death of a second man in unincorporated north Bothell.

Officials have confirmed that the 36-year-old victim died after he was shot outside his family’s residence on Friday afternoon.

“A call came in to 911 that a suspicious vehicle was parked in the neighborhood just before 3 p.m.,” said Snohomish County Sheriff’s spokesperson Sheri Ireton. “A few minutes after 3 p.m., a second call came it to 911 that the victim had been shot.”

Attempts to revive the victim were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident took place in the 10 block of 198th Place SE and the cul de sac is still blocked while deputies conduct their investigation. Deputies searched for the suspect for about seven hours in the north Bothell neighborhood before finally making an arrest. Detectives also interviewed several witnesses at the scene.

“(The suspect’s) vehicle was impounded and take into evidence,” Ireton said. “Detectives are still trying to determine what the motive was for the shooting, but several witness statements stated that the interaction between the suspect and victim was possibly drug-related.”
