Marysville schools locked down during search for carjacker

Two Marysville schools were placed under lockdown this morning during the search for an armed carjacker, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The vehicle, a Chevrolet Silverado, was reported stolen at gunpoint around 7 a.m. from state Highway 529 at Ebey Slough, north of Everett. The pickup was found abandoned about an hour and a half later in the 4900 block of 67th Street Northeast in Marysville, the Sheriff’s Office said.

A K-9 team was brought in to search for the carjacker, prompting the lockdown of Marysville Middle School and Liberty Elementary School, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The gunman was not located, and the lockdown was lifted around 10:15 a.m., the Sheriff’s Office said.
