Police: Gun that killed girl was not dad's service weapon

STANWOOD, Wash. -- The gun involved in the fatal shooting of a Marysville police officer's daughter was not the officer's service weapon, investigators said.

The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said the gun that killed 7-year-old Jenna Carlile was personally owned by her father.

The girl was shot by her brother, who found the loaded gun in the glove compartment of the family's van as it was parked near the Stanwood City Hall.

Investigators said the boy was handling the weapon when the gun discharged, striking the girl and fatally wounding her.

The parents were out of the vehicle at the time of the shooting, but nearby.

Marysville police identified the girl’s father as Officer Derek Carlile, a 3-year veteran of the department.

Deputies are investigating the incident, and will forward the findings to the prosecutor’s office.

Jenna was a student at Utsalady Elementary School on Camano Island.
