Three young adults were shot to death and another seriously wounded at a party Saturday in an upscale Mukilteo neighborhood when the ex-boyfriend of one of the victims showed up with an AK15 semi-automatic rifle he purchased a few days before.
He went around the house, found his ex-girlfriend and started shooting. He then, according to some reports, climbed on the roof of the house and shot another person.
He was arrested in Chehalis and arraigned on Tuesday, August 2.
The shooter and the young woman, Anna Bui, of Everett, were both students at UW Bothell.
One of the victims, Jacob M. Long, 19 of Everett, was an employee at Shoreline Community College.
Shoreline President Cheryl Roberts, Ed.D. issued a statement to the Shoreline CC community, which said, in part,
"We are deeply saddened to learn that Jake Long, a member of our Shoreline family, was one of the three victims of the fatal Mukilteo shooting this past weekend. Jake worked as an employee of Lancer Hospitality on campus and was known by many as a bright and friendly staff member.
“As a treasured member of our Shoreline community, Jake’s passing is a terrible tragedy. The administration and counselors will do all we can to support students and employees who may be grieving this tremendous loss. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of all who are affected by this senseless shooting.”
A brief memorial gathering was held on campus Tuesday, and counseling was made available for students and employees.
