Man found shot in Snohomish


A 49-year-old Snohomish man was found wounded Friday morning from a gunshot to the head, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to a 911 call from the victim's brother about 9:17 a.m. The brother said he went to the man's home on the 6100 block of 171st Avenue Southeast after he had not heard from him for several days.

The brother told deputies that he found the man on his bedroom floor with a single wound to his head. A gun and gun-cleaning rod were found near the victim, and there was no indication of foul play, the sheriff's office said. The man was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center.
