ARLINGTON — The 17-year-old girl who was shot by two Arlington police officers in February has been released from the hospital, officials said Thursday.
She previously was in intensive care at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. It was unclear whether she has returned home.
Detectives with the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team are investigating the Feb. 14 shooting.
Early that morning, several people called 911 saying a person was lying in the middle of the road and screaming. Recordings of these calls were released by police last week.
When officers arrived, they tried to talk with the girl. A short time later, an officer broadcast on his radio that the girl was armed with a knife and was suicidal.
She advanced toward officers with the knife, said Aaron Snell, an Everett police officer and a spokesman for SMART. An attempt to stop her with an electronic stun gun was unsuccessful.
The girl was shot in the chest and her lower right side, according to police radio recordings.
