Her grades earned her the nickname “4.0” and she was celebrating her 15th birthday Saturday night when Molly Conley of Seattle was shot dead while walking with friends along a Lake Stevens road.
Lake Stevens police say she was the victim of a drive-by shooting. There are no suspects, and police have asked for help from the Snohomish County Major Crimes Unit, the Marysville Police Department, and the public — urging anybody with information about the crime to come forward.
