Police say the girl shot her father around 8:00 p.m. and refused to let him use the telephone to call for help. It has been reported that the man was forced to crawl to a neighbor’s home where he called 911.
After the incident, the teen apparently took off into the woods…still armed with the compound bow and about 35 arrows. Because she was considered armed and dangerous, a SWAT team was brought in to assist deputies with the search.
The SWAT team tracked the kid down and took her into custody at about 11:00 p.m. Police say the girl was found “to be despondent with a serious medical issue.” She was promptly transported to Marry Bridge Children’s Hospital for treatment of said unknown medical issue.
As for her 35-year-old father, he was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he is listed in critical condition with an arrow wound to the torso.
Sheriff’s Detective William Adam has reported that since the man is the girl’s only known family member, she will not be brought before the court until she is released from the hospital and medically cleared to be detained in juvenile detention.Tags: bow and arrow, cell phone, Juvenile
