There is not points to locate on the map

The 7-year-old daughter of a Marysville police officer, who was wounded Saturday afternoon when her sibling fired a gun that was inside their parents’ van, died early Sunday morning, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said.

The shooting happened about 3:25 p.m. near Stanwood City Hall, in the 10200 block of Highway 532. The children’s parents were nearby when the gun went off, the sheriff’s office had said earlier.

The sheriff’s office, which is investigating the shooting at the request of Stanwood police, said Sunday morning that its investigation is continuing and no further information will be released “until at least early next week.”

The Snohomish County medical examiner will be responsible for releasing the victim’s identity and the cause and manner of her death, the sheriff’s office said.
