MARYSVILLE — Half a dozen shooters caused a commotion on Wednesday, April 25, by target-shooting with a shotgun in a no-shoot zone outside the city limits of Marysville.
Marysville Police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux refuted earlier reports that shots were fired at officers, and acknowledged that police had previously believed the shooters might have been hunters engaging in illegal poaching of deer that frequent the area.
According to Lamoureux, the shooters have been identified as two men and four women, all adults, who shot approximately 20-25 shotgun shells in a wooded area in the 7000 block of 96th Street. He added that the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office responded on site.
"No arrests have been made at this point, and that determination will be made by Sheriff's Deputies," Lamoureux said.
