Homeowner’s friend shoots alleged intruder/robber, sends another fleeing

LAKE STEVENS — Police said two masked, armed men allegedly entered a garage of a home in the Lake Stevens area, confronted the homeowner and his friend there and allegedly attempted to rob them. But the friend was able to pull a gun out of his car and opened fire, hitting one of the suspects and prompting the other one to flee, police said.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said the shooting took place at a home in the 7000 block of 126th Drive NE.

“It is believed that two men, the homeowner and a male acquaintance, were in the garage when two males entered with their faces covered and attempted to rob them at gunpoint,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
