Teen Wounded By Gunfire Following Fight on Alki Beach

A teen who arrived at an Everett hospital with a gunshot wound early Sunday told staff he’d been struck by gunfire while at Alki Beach, but wouldn’t say much else.

Police received received reports around 1 AM of a fight and gunshots near Marine Avenue SW and Alki Avenue SW, several hours before the wounded 17-year-old showed up at the hospital.

At the scene, witnesses said a group of four or five men had chased another man to a black car, and began pounding on the vehicle.

Someone inside the car fired several shots, scattering the group. The black car then sped away.

Around 3 AM, the 17-year-old checked himself into the hospital and said he’d been shot at Alki, but when police arrived to talk to him he declined to discuss the incident.

Detectives are now investigating.
