EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The Snohomish County prosecutor says two guards were justified in shooting at a car that hit one of them in a parking lot outside a federal building in Bothell.

The driver, a 15-year-old boy, was wounded in the foot in the Feb. 8 shooting outside the Food and Drug Administration's regional laboratory office.

Prosecutor Mark Roe says the guards were justified in shooting at the car when the teen refused to stop and hit one of them with the car mirror. He attended an alternative high school in the same business park.

The Daily Herald reports prosecutors are reviewing the case against the teen.
