Everett police arrested a man on suspicion of second-degree murder in connection with a shooting Saturday night that left a man dead.
Officers responded to a report of a shooting a little after 7 p.m. Saturday in the 5100 block of Glenwood Avenue, according to the Everett Police Department. They arrived to find two vehicles had collided, blocking the avenue, and found a man in one of the vehicles with “severe head injuries” who also “appeared to have been shot,” according to a statement from the department.
Efforts to revive the victim were unsuccessful. After a tip from a witness, officers interviewed a man in his 50s, who had a handgun in his pocket. He was later booked into the Snohomish County Jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.
The Snohomish County Medical Examiner identified the victim as Steven A. Whitemarsh, 49, of Everett. He died of gunshot wounds to the head, according to the office.
