At approximately 5:50 p.m. Saturday, December 4, 2021, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to reports of a shooting in the 8600 block of SR-92 in Granite Falls.
Medics arrived on scene first and attempted lifesaving measures on an 11-month-old girl, who suffered a gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead on scene. The little girl’s parents who were present at the residence were interviewed by Major Crimes Unit (MCU) detectives and cooperated with the investigation. Detectives then returned to the residence on Sunday, December 5, to serve a search warrant, collect evidence.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit detectives referred the case to the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office in November 2022. On January 18, 2024, charges were filed on both parents who were home at the time of the shooting.
At this time, the parents have not been arrested for manslaughter in the death of their 11-month baby girl.
