LYNNWOOD, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say a 19-year-old Everett man has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old Lynnwood man over the weekend.
The Seattle Times reported Tuesday the man was arrested on investigation of second-degree murder in the shooting which happened Saturday night at a Lynnwood apartment complex.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office says the shooting is believed to have been sparked by a disagreement over a borrowed 2006 Honda Pilot that had not been returned on time.
Authorities believe the suspect was in the passenger seat when he fired a single shot through the closed window, striking and killing the victim.
Police say the victim, who has not been identified, was part of a group who had arrived at the apartment complex looking for the borrowed car.
