He was shot by a homeowner, who later told police the young man was an intruder. The homeowner reportedly heard pounding on his back laundry room door at 4 a.m. Saturday in the 19800 block of 106th Ave NE. When he went to investigate, he reported he saw a shirtless stranger in his yard. He opened up his slider next to the backdoor and reportedly told him to leave and that he had a gun, Everett Police Officer Kerby Duncan said. Smith reportedly continued to advance on the homeowner, who was still inside his home.
