Sibling injures girl, 7, in accidental shooting in Stanwood | HeraldNet.com - Local news STANWOOD -- Snohomish County Sheriff's deputies are investigating what they believe is an accidental shooting Saturday afternoon involving the young children of a Marysville police officer. Stanwood police responded to a call at 3:25 p.m. Saturday in the 10200 block of Highway 532 near Stanwood City Hall, said Lt. Brent Speyer of the sheriff's office. Their initial investigation led them to believe that a child found a firearm in the vehicle where the child was sitting and then the child, whose age and sex have not released, apparently discharged the gun, striking a 7-year-old sister, Speyer said. The girl was transported to a local hospital, but on Saturday evening deputies were not able to release her medical condition, Speyer said. The children belong to a Marysville police officer and the vehicle involved in the incident also belongs to the Marysville officer, Speyer said. The parents of the children involved were nearby when the incident occurred, Speyer said. The Marysville Police Department, in a release, confirmed that the shooting involved the children of a Marysville Police Department employee. "At this time we are all extremely concerned for the well-being of one of our department family members, said Police Chief Rick Smith. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family, especially his injured little girl. The Stanwood Police Department requested that the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office investigate the incident.
