 Bothell Police arrested a lone suspect Sunday night, April 25 - in an incident that quickly turned into a homicide investigation in the 19000 block of 112th Ave NE, just west of Beardslee Blvd. 

 Just before 7:30pm, several calls came in to Bothell 911.  Callers stated that a man had been stabbed.  Our first officer at the scene arrived within moments of the first 911 calls.  She immediately began life-saving procedures.  Soon after, medics arrived at the scene.

Unfortunately, the  29-year-old-man's life could not be saved.
