ARLINGTON – The two Arlington police officers involved in the shooting of a 17-year-old girl returned to active duty on March 13 and 14.

Both have completed preliminary interviews with detectives from the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team, which is investigating the Feb. 14 shooting.

The decision to return them to work now is consistent with department policies, Arlington city spokeswoman Kristin Banfield said.

The Arlington girl was shot in the chest and her lower right side after police were summoned to an early morning call of a woman lying in the middle of E. Division Street near Olympic Avenue. She was initially hospitalized as “critical,” then her condition was upgraded. She was later released.

SMART detectives are still completing the investigation, which could take several month, but will present all information the county Prosecutor’s Office for review and consideration of criminal charges – for any party involved – when everything is finished, SMART spokesman Aaron Snell said.
