Marysville boy, 17, hospitalized after being shot in neck

MARYSVILLE — Police are investigating a shooting in which a 17-year-old Marysville boy was seriously injured early Sunday.

The victim had been rushed to Providence Regional Medical Center by friends early Sunday with a gunshot wound to his neck. Police were notified of the incident just after 1 a.m. by the victim’s relatives.

The victim was later airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with life-threatening injuries.
