Everett police responded to reports that a man had been shot in the 900 block of West Casino Road around 8 p.m. today spokesman Aaron Snell said. The man was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. His condition was not known.
Witnesses said a man in a car had fled the scene around the time of the shooting, according to Snell. Officers detained one man in Mill Creek around 8:20 p.m. in connection with the shooting, but the man was later released when officers determine he wasn’t involved.
The shooting occurred near an apartment complex where another man was fatally shot in late January. Jeffrey J. Wehl, 57, died on Jan. 23, two days after he was shot in the head.
