Family confrontation ends in man's shooting

A Bothell man was reportedly shot in the stomach in Marysville early Monday morning after a confrontation with his girlfriend's family.

The victim, 20, was reportedly shot with a handgun, Marysville police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux said.

No arrests have been made.

"We do know who the person is who fired the gun, but some issues have been raised concerning self-defense," Lamoureux said.

The injured man was out of surgery Monday but his condition was unknown, Lamoureux said.

Police and aid crews responded to the incident, reported at 12:02 a.m. at a fourplex of apartments in the 1200 block of Woodgate Avenue in Marysville.

Before the shooting, a confrontation had occurred between the man and his girlfriend, Lamoureux said.

"When the boyfriend brought the girlfriend home to where the father and uncle lived, they confronted the boyfriend," he said.

After the man was shot, he was rushed by helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and his condition was critical going into surgery, Lamoureux said.

His current condition was not available due to medical privacy laws, he said.

Lamoureux said that witnesses and the girlfriend's uncle were taken to the police department for questioning.
No subsequent stories about this incident were found.
