EVERETT, WA – An 18 year-old Cascade High School student was arrested last night for making threats to another student via Snapchat.  Deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 9800 block of 36th Dr SE around 11:15 p.m.  The victim, also an 18 year-old student from Cascade HS, told deputies he received a Snapchat photo of an assault rifle and a pistol from the suspect, along with a threatening message.  The victim reported that he then received a video of the Columbine Shooting from the suspect, followed by a photo of two what appeared to be two males wearing masks holding the assault rifle and pistol.  While deputies were on scene investigating, the victim received additional threatening messages from the suspect.

Deputies located the suspect, along with two other males, at a residence at the 1200 block of Madrona Ave.  The suspect told deputies that the guns in the photos were not real, but Airsoft guns.  The suspect was taken into custody and booked into the Snohomish County jail for stalking and felony harassment.  Everett Police assisted with the investigation. The other two males, who were with the suspect, cooperated with deputies and have not been arrested.
