Mountlake Terrace police are investigating an early Sunday morning shooting in the 23900 block of 60th Avenue West that took the life of a man in his early 20s.
According to Commander Pat Lowe, police were called to the location about 12:30 a.m. after receiving multiple reports of gunshots heard in the area. Officers responding to the call discovered the body of a man near the roadway. The victim appeared to have died from a gunshot wound.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner is taking custody of the body and will determine a cause and manner of death.
