A 17-year-old male was taken into custody March 6 in connection with a Feb. 26 homicide that occurred at Brio Condominiums in unincorporated Lynnwood. According to Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe, the juvenile was arrested in the 15600 block of 35th Avenue West and was booked into Denny Juvenile Justice Center for second-degree murder.
