17-year-old girl airlifted to hospital after Arlington police shooting

ARLINGTON, Wash. -- Authorities say a 17-year-old girl is in critical condition at a Seattle hospital following a police shooting in Arlington.

Harborview Medical Center spokesperson Susan Gregg says the girl arrived at about 7:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Investigators said the shooting occurred on N. Olympic Ave. as police responded at 5 a.m. to what was described as "a disturbance between a male and a female." They said the arriving officers separated the two, and that the girl had a knife before she was shot.

Medics airlifted her to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where officials said she was in critical condition.

The Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team is taking over the investigation.
