The Snohomish man who suffered a gunshot wound during a reported break-in at his home Sunday night was shot with his own gun, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday.
The sheriff’s office said the weapon was recovered at the scene and is registered to the victim.
The 22 year-old Snohomish man remains in stable condition at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, the sheriff’s office wrote in a news release. Detectives still do not have a good description of the gunman, but believe he is armed and dangerous.
The victim told deputies he was wounded by an intruder who broke into his house just before 7:30 p.m.
