ARLINGTON — An Arlington area man was hospitalized Sunday afternoon after he was apparently accidentally shot by his friend.

Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call from the 17200 block of 116th Place NE, between Arlington and Granite Falls.

A 36-year-old man was working on the holster for his friend’s firearm when the gun went off, hitting his friend in the hip.

The victim, a 34-year-old man, was conscious and alert when deputies arrived, and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The shooting remains under investigation.
