Everett Police detectives have detained several people for questioning who may have been involved in a fatal shooting Tuesday night.

Around 8:30 p.m., several 911 callers reported a man had been shot near the Denny's in the 8400 block of Evergreen Way in Everett.

Responding officers administered first aid to the victim, a 39-year-old Seattle man, who ultimately died. A police K-9 found a handgun that was likely used in the shooting, but no suspects were located.

Witnesses reported seeing a car speeding away after the incident, which detectives were able to track to an apartment complex in South Everett.

The Snohomish Medical Examiner will identify the body and determine the official cause of death.

Detectives continue to investigate the shooting.
