Arlington, Wash. – Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested an assault suspect after a short pursuit in the Arlington area.

Today about 9:30 am, a victim arrived at the Sheriff’s North Precinct reporting that another man had shot at him nearby.  Deputies began investigating, determining the alleged shooting occurred near 128th ST NE and 34th Ave NE in the Marysville area.  Deputies broadcast suspect information, including a vehicle description, to all local police. 

About 1:06 pm, a Tulalip Tribal Police Officer spotted the suspect vehicle driving north on I-5 through Marysville.  Sheriff’s Deputies and our Snohomish PD K9 Deputy responded to the area and attempted to stop the suspect vehicle.  It slowed but refused to stop; Deputies utilized the Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) maneuver and stopped the vehicle just north of the Smokey Point Rest area.  During the follow up investigation at the pursuit scene the inside (left) lane of I-5 was blocked for some time causing traffic to build in the area.  The suspect’s vehicle was impounded pending a search warrant for evidence.

The male victim is in his 40’s and from the Stanwood area.  The suspect is 40 and from Everett.
