The 94-year-old man accused of shooting and killing his grandson Sunday morning is currently being held at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett for a “mental health” evaluation, Everett police reported Monday.
Authorities received reports of shots fired at about 10:15 a.m. in the 700 block of Madison Street and evacuated nearby homes. They struggled to make contact with the occupants of the house, then entered through a window to find a man in his 40s who had been shot, according to the police department.
Authorities are investigating what led to the shooting. Everett police said the medical examiner’s office would be working to identify the cause of death and would release the deceased man’s identity.
