Update 3/23 12:30 p.m.:
The Everett police officer who was shot in the head is now reported to be in a serious, but stable, condition at Providence Regional Medical Center, according to SMART.
Dan Templeman, Chief of Everett Police, released a statement about the shooting in support of the wounded officer.
“[Wednesday] morning a member of our Everett police family was senselessly shot while investigating a robbery complaint in south Everett. Both Mayor Cassie Franklin and I have the utmost respect and admiration for the difficult and dangerous work our law enforcement professionals perform, day in and day out. Our focus right now is on supporting our officer and his family as he recovers from his injuries but ask our entire community to please keep not only our officer and his family in their thoughts, but all members of the Everett Police Department.”
A shooting in Everett early Wednesday morning ended with at least one person dead, and an officer hurt.
A large police response prompted authorities to shut down Evergreen Way from Casino Road to Holly Road, where there are two scenes cordoned off with crime scene tape.

A gas station at the south end of the Fred Meyer parking lot at the corner of Evergreen Way and Casino Road and across the street at the CarHop used car lot are the two locations involved in the shooting.
A spokesperson for the Everett Fire Department told KIRO 7 an Everett Police officer was taken to the Colby Campus of Providence Hospital. The officer is reportedly in stable condition after being shot in the head, according to Everett Police.
The Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team (SMART) has taken over the investigation and is in charge of investigating police use of force incidents such as officer-involved shootings.
Investigators now tell KIRO Newsradio’s Sam Campbell the shooting started with a reported armed robbery by the Safeway about a mile north. SMART spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe says three other people are suspected of being involved in the initial robbery, but they have not been found, and no other gunshots were reported.
Officers from Everett and Edmonds are at the scene, along with deputies from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
