Young woman shot near Edmonds market dies

EDMONDS, Wash. (AP) — A 20-year-old Mountlake Terrace woman has died after someone shot her outside an Edmonds market in an incident that also wounded two others Tuesday afternoon.

The woman, a 24-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man were shot just before 3:30 p.m. at the Boo Han market, located in a shopping plaza on Highway 99, police said.

Edmonds police spokesperson Sgt. Josh McClure told The Seattle Times that the shooter, a 27-year-old Everett man, is either the ex-husband or estranged husband of the 24-year-old woman, who was shot in the face.

She was working at the market when the shooting happened.

The two female victims were roommates, police said. The 20-year-old also worked at Boo Han and had finished her shift at 2 p.m. Tuesday, but she and her boyfriend — the man who was shot — returned to the market later that day to talk to the other woman, McClure said.

According to probable-cause documents, surveillance video from the market shows the alleged shooter went in the store several times before the shooting. While he was inside, the three victims walked out and stopped near a wall, McClure said. Shortly after, video shows the man leaving the store, turning and “very intentionally uses gunfire to harm the victims,” McClure said.

The 24-year-old woman remains in serious condition in the intensive-care unit at Harborview. The man, who suffered gunshot wounds to his legs and torso, was in stable condition Wednesday afternoon, McClure said.

Officers called the suspect’s mother, who told officers she was with her son at the Everett Police Department’s South Precinct. He told Edmonds detectives on the phone that he wanted to turn himself in. His bail hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
