A Marysville neighborhood is on edge after a shooting between a homeowner and three suspects. One of them is now in police custody

“Yeah,” she said. “All our cars, all our neighbors, my daughter’s window.”
Marysville Police used drones and K-9s to track down these suspects. The K-9 helped them locate the first suspect.
