EVERETT (CBS) – Police are searching for two suspects after a late night shooting in Everett. A man in his 20s was killed in the shooting.

Police said two people were seen taking off from the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call Everett Police.

Neighbor Molly Cahill said the violence was out of character for the normally quiet neighborhood.

“Very nice, quiet little Everett neighborhood. You go from dead quiet to this. I don’t know. It’s a shock,” she said.
