MUKILTEO, Wash. - A young woman was found dead early Wednesday morning near Mukilteo in what authorities believe was a homicide.

At about 2 a.m., Snohomish County sheriff's deputies were called to the 3100 block of York Road after receiving multiple calls reporting gunfire in the area. When they arrived, they found a woman in her 20s shot to death inside a home there.

Another woman and three children were also inside the home at the time, although none of them were injured. The woman was interviewed about what she may have seen, but police say they don't have any suspects yet.

Police tell KOMO News they have been called to this address before.
