Edmonds Mayor Mike Nelson talks to Edmonds Police Sgt. Shane Hawley at a news conference Friday morning.


The Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the victim of a homicide at the Edmonds 7-11 on HIghway 99 on Friday: 64-year-old Nagendiram Kandasamy of Edmonds.


Although the investigation is just beginning, Edmonds police say Friday morning's murder of a store clerk is something that just doesn't occur in Edmonds.

Now it has.

"I can't think of the last time this happened," said Sgt. Shane Hawley, a longtime Edmonds Police Department public information officer. His last day as a PIO is Monday, after which he will switch over to patrol.
