Fatal Snohomish drive-by shooting death of John Smith – Obituary
In a tragic incident on Thursday night, John Smith lost his life in a fatal shooting that occurred in Snohomish. The harrowing incident unfolded around 7:45 p.m. when gunshots rang out from a passing vehicle, prompting a swift response from Snohomish County deputies.
Responding to the distressing call, deputies rushed to the scene, located just off South Machias Road. Upon their arrival, they discovered the lifeless body of a man in his 30s lying in the middle of the road. Shockingly, it was revealed that the victim resided in close proximity to where this horrifying event transpired.
The Washington State Department of Corrections confirmed that the deceased individual was a dedicated correction officer at the Monroe Correctional Complex. He had faithfully served in this role for approximately one and a half years, earning the respect of his colleagues and peers.
As the investigation unfolds, authorities have chosen not to disclose the victim’s identity, perhaps to protect the privacy of his grieving family during this difficult time.
The tight-lipped stance extends to the suspects as well, as detectives have refrained from sharing any description of those involved in this senseless act of violence. However, it has been reported that following the callous shooting, the perpetrators hastily fled the scene in a northbound direction.
The motive behind this heinous crime remains shrouded in mystery, leaving investigators grappling with the unanswered question of whether the victim had any prior connection to the heartless individuals responsible for this tragedy.
