Major Crimes detectives with Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office are on the hunt for a man who shot another man multiple times near Paine Field on Sunday afternoon along Admiralty Way.

The suspect, described by witnesses as a 5′ 8″ Black man in his 20s with short hair, a green shirt, and tan pants, was said to have fled on foot.

Detectives think the man is armed, but say he is not a threat to the community.

They think the two men were in an argument before the shooting – but they haven’t said what the two were fighting about.

After the shooting, the victim was transported to Providence Hospital but died from his injuries.

K-9 teams were deployed, but couldn’t track the shooter.

An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
