Guard shoots at teenage driver outside Bothell FDA office
BOTHELL, Wash. — Bothell police said a security officer fired shots at a teenage driver outside the regional Food and Drug Administration building in Bothell.

Police said a guard fired at least one shot at the driver of the car, a 15-year-old boy. The teenager then fled the scene, struck another vehicle, and then went home, police said.
The teenager then went to Evergreen Hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries. It is not known if he was injured from a gunshot or in the crash.
A Federal Protective Service spokesman said the suspect was found and taken into custody.
