Hospital security guard injured in unknown incident

EVERETT — A security guard at Swedish/Mill Creek hospital said he heard a pinging sound and felt pain in his arm as he was emptying cardboard into a dumpster Sunday morning, but the cause of his injury is unknown.

The incident occurred about 11:30 a.m. at the satellite emergency room, which is near the 128th Street SW exit of I-5 south of Everett.

The employee had four tiny holes and a scratch on his arm, said Shari Ireton, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.

“No one heard gunshots,” she said. “As far as we know, there’s been no crime committed.”
