Lake Stevens boy, 3, shot in mouth while playing at home

UPDATE at 6 p.m.: A 3-year-old boy is in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center after being shot in the mouth Friday night at his Lake Stevens home in the 600 block of East Lake Shore Drive.

The boy’s father told the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office the boy was playing in a bedroom with a 4-year-old neighbor shortly before 10 p.m. when the father heard a loud noise. Finding the bedroom door locked, the father forced the door open and found his son with a mouth injury, which he told officers he initially thought was caused by the bedroom door striking the child.

The boy was taken to Providence Medical Center in Everett where it was determined the injury was a gunshot wound. He was then airlifted to Harborview.

The Sheriff’s Office said the initial information suggests the 4-year-old neighbor may have accidentally shot the boy while playing, but the cause of the shooting is still under investigation.
