EVERETT – Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit are investigating a stabbing that killed a man in Everett.
Just after 10:00 p.m. last night, officers responded to a convenience store in the 6900 block of Broadway Ave for an assault with a weapon call. Arriving officers discovered the employee had been stabbed and used K-9’s to search for a possible suspect. During the search, another 911 caller said his roommate just arrived home and stated he had stabbed a man. Officers went to the home and detained the roommate without incident.
At this time, Major Crime’s detectives believe the suspect planned a robbery, but stabbed the employee. As the suspect was getting money, a female entered the business. The suspect grabbed the female and slashed at her, but she fought back. After a struggle, the female escaped and ran outside. The suspect followed, but then ran to his residence where he told his roommate what happened.
The 25 year-old suspect has been booked into the Snohomish County Jail where he will be charged with murder, attempted murder, and two counts of robbery.
The employee, an adult male, died at the scene. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office will take custody of the victim to determine cause and manner of death and will provide identity once family has been notified.
Crime scene technicians with the Washington State Patrol are assisting with processing the crime scene.
