A 17-year-old boy was critically injured in a shooting in Marysville early Sunday morning.

Police say the shooting occurred at an apartment in east Marysville. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the neck.

Police say they were notified of the shooting by relatives of the victim just after 1 a.m. Sunday.

Detectives are working on piecing the details together but have been hindered by the delay in reporting and witnesses who have not been entirely cooperative, police say.

The victim was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

“At this point in the investigation there are a lot of rumors going around about the shooting,” stated Commander Robb Lamoureux.  “Detectives are diligently following up on information they are receiving in order to determine what actually happened.”

Investigators are asking for anyone who has information regarding the shooting to contact Detective Bartl at 360-363-8350.
