Updated at 1:45 p.m. Friday with additional information from Edmonds police:
Edmonds police spokesman Assistant Chief Jim Lawless said that numerous witnesses, as well as the two in-custody suspects, have been interviewed in connection with the investigation. “At this point it appears that all of the involved parties were known to one another and are accounted for and no other individuals were involved in the altercation,” Lawless said.
Both suspects will be booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree murder and first-degree robbery. The identity of the dead man will be released by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office, he added.

An adult man died on the scene after being stabbed in the Edmonds Westgate QFC parking lot Friday morning.
Edmonds police spokesman Assistant Chief Jim Lawless said police were called to the parking lot at 5:55 a.m. for a report of a disturbance. While on route, they also received a report of a vehicle — a white Cadillac — fleeing the scene.
When police arrived at the QFC, located at 22828 100th Ave. W., they found the man who had been stabbed. Police found the Cadillac nearby, in the area of 15th Street Southwest and 8th Place South, Lawless said.
The man in the vehicle had also been stabbed. He was treated at Swedish/Edmonds and then released to police custody, Lawless said. The woman in the vehicle was uninjured and is also in custody. Police have no reason to believe that any additional suspects are at large, he added. Lawless said it isn’t known if any of the people involved in the incident were from Edmonds.
The north end of the QFC parking lot is closed, as is the area of 15th Avenue and 8th Place where the vehicle was stopped, while police investigate the crime scene.
