MARYSVILLE – Marysville detectives have arrested three suspects in connection with the March 24 drive-by shooting of a 20-year-old man in the Albertson’s parking lot in the Marysville Towne Centre Mall at Fourth Street and State Avenue.

Two adult suspects, a 20-year-old Snohomish man and a 19-year-old Marysville man, were booked into the Snohomish County Jail Tuesday night on suspicion of first-degree assault and drive-by shooting, police said. A third male accomplice, 17, from Marysville, was booked into the Denney Juvenile Justice Center on the same charges.

Police and medics responded to the shooting at about 4 a.m. An initial investigation found that a car full of people had pulled into the parking lot. When the victim got out of the car, someone inside the vehicle opened fire, hitting the man three times.

The gunshot victim, who lives in Granite Falls, was treated at the scene for life-threatening injuries before being taken by aid car to an Everett hospital. He is recovering from his injuries and is expected to survive, police said.

When police interviewed the victim, he would not share any information.

“We were able to talk to him; he was not cooperative,” Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux said. “He did not want to tell us who did this.”

Lamoureux would not confirm whether it was a gang-related shooting, but did say police have targeted that area for that type of activity.

Detectives have reviewed security video and are interviewing witnesses, but no additional details are expected to be released at this time as the investigation continues.

“We feel confident this was not a random shooting,” Lamoureux said. Investigators are asking anyone who may have been in the Albertson’s parking lot area before or during the shooting to contact them at 360-363-8350.
