ARLINGTON — A teenage girl shot by two Arlington police officers in February might face criminal charges.
The young woman allegedly assaulted her boyfriend and the officers that night before the gunfire, according to information released by police Dec. 13. The officers alleged she was suicidal and had a knife.
The investigation was conducted by the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team, a task force of detectives assigned to police shootings. They recently closed their case.
Detectives recommended the young woman be charged with two counts of felony second-degree assault. They also referred charges for misdemeanor fourth-degree domestic-violence assault and disorderly conduct, said Everett police officer Aaron Snell, a SMART spokesman. Their findings were forwarded to Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Roe. He will determine if any charges will be filed against the girl or the officers involved in the Feb. 14 shooting.
