July 26, 2019

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) — A 32-year-old Concrete, Washington, man was charged in Skagit County Superior Court with attempted murder after a shooting in Hamilton.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports that Scott Elis Fritts is being held in the Skagit County Community Justice Center on $500,000 bail for the shooting late Tuesday near Hamilton.

According to court documents, Fritts went to the house of an acquaintance and shot him in the chest with a handgun. He then began firing a shotgun at the victim, documents said.

A threatening note was allegedly found at the scene, documents said.

Fritts was arrested Wednesday morning at a residence where he was staying.

He’s scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 2. It’s not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
