The man who opened fire in the woods outside Arlington, wounding one man, apparently acted alone, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
The man armed with a rifle was found fatally shot around 8 last night. Sheriff’s deputies, as well as police from Everett, Lynnwood and Edmonds then launched a search for a possible accomplice but the search was called off around 11:30 p.m.
The Sheriff’s Office has not said whether deputies shot the man.
Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Dittoe said the incident started around 1:30 p.m. when a man walking near Jim Creek was hit in the leg by gunfire, then “reported hearing multiple gunshots from the woods.” The wounded man suffered non-life-threatening injuries, the Sheriff’s Office said.
During the search for the gunman several vehicles were hit by gunfire.
The investigation into the shooting will resume this morning.
