MARYSVILLE — Marysville Police Chief Rick Smith is expected to address the news media at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 12, about the shooting death of Jenna Carlile, the 7-year-old daughter of Marysville Police Officer Derek Carlile.
Derek Carlile was sworn into the Marysville Police Department in September of 2009, and has been placed on administrative leave for an investigation into Jenna's death.
The young girl – who died on Sunday, March 11, at a Seattle hospital – was shot on Saturday, March 10, by her sibling, who found a loaded gun in the family's van as it was parked near the Stanwood City Hall, while their parents were nearby but outside of the vehicle.
