      Police: Fatal Sedro-Woolley shooting may have been gang related

      SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. -- Police believe a Monday evening shooting that left one man dead and another injured was gang related.

      Officers were called to a shooting at the Cascade View apartment complex just after 6 p.m. When they arrived at the complex, located in the 300 block of Ball Street, they found two men with gunshot wounds.

      One man in his late 20s was taken to a Mount Vernon's Skagit Valley Hospital and the other -- a man in his mid 30s -- was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Lt. William Tucker with the Sedro-Woolley Police Department.

      Tucker said he believes the shooting was gang related and may be retaliation for a recent shooting that took place outside of Sedro-Woolley.

      The deceased man's family confirmed to police that he was a gang member, Tucker said.

      Police are questioning two residents at the apartment complex. The men are considered persons of interest in the case, but no arrests have been made.

      A third person of interest remains on the loose.

      The surviving victim is in critical condition.
