According to a tweet Friday night on the City of Lake Stevens’ Twitter account, Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies have made an arrest in connection with the June 1 murder of 15-year-old Molly Conley. Kiro reports:

Sheriff’s office spokesperson Shari Ireton confirmed Friday evening that detectives had arrested a 26-year-old Marysville man in connection with the nearly month-old case. The man, who has not been identified, was arrested Friday at his home and booked into Snohomish County Jail on suspicion of first degree murder. Conley, a Bishop Blanchet freshman, was walking with friends in Lake Stevens on the night of June 1 when she was shot once in the neck in what police have said appeared to be a random drive-by shooting. Snohomish County dispatchers made reverse-911 calls last week to about 4,000 phones, seeking information that could help catch Conley’s killer. Prentiss said the recorded calls were answered by nearly 1,500 phones; nearly 1,700 went to voice mail; and about 900 were not answered or disconnected. The message said detectives are investigating several shootings in and around Lake Stevens the night of June 1 and morning of June 2, including the one that killed Conley. It’s unclear if those calls played any role in Friday’s arrest.
