A 20-year-old woman from Mountlake Terrace was killed after someone shot her outside a market in Edmonds in an accident that also injured two others.
The woman, a 24-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man, was shot shortly before 3:30 PM. At Bo Han Market, which is in a shopping plaza on Highway 99, police said.
Edmunds Police Spokesman Sgt. Josh McClure told the Seattle Times that the shooter, a 27-year-old man from Everett, is either the ex-husband or alienated husband of the 24-year-old woman, who was shot in the face.
She was working in the market when the shooting happened.
Police said the two victims were roommates. The 20-year-old also worked for Boo Han and finished her shift at 2 pm. But she and her friend – the man who was shot – said they returned to the market later that day to talk to the other woman, McClure said.
According to documents of possible cause, surveillance video from the market shows that the alleged shooter entered the store several times before the shooting. Maclour said that while he was inside, the three victims came out and stopped near the wall. Soon after, a video clip shows the man leaving the store, turning around and “intentionally using bullets to harm the victims,” McClure said.
The 24-year-old remains critically ill in Harbourview’s intensive care unit. McClure said the man, who was shot in the legs and torso, was in stable condition on Wednesday afternoon.
Officers called the suspect’s mother, who told the officers that she was with her son at South Everett Police Department. The investigators told Edmunds on the phone that he wanted to turn himself in.
