The teenager is being held in in a juvenile detention center. The guards were under contract to Homeland Security that provides security for Federal buildings. He is a student at the school next door to the lab and why he was in the parking lot is still a mystery as all know that the FDA lab is off limits one other student said. It didn’t help that when the student was approached that he backed out and hit one of the guards with his car and then took off speeding with his car. One thing everyone knows now that there’s an FDA lab in Bothell, Washington that analyzes samples of products for safety and compliance. Police tracked the student to his home and put the school on temporary lockdown. BD
SEATTLE - Security guards at a Food and Drug Administration laboratory in Bothell called police to say they had fired gunshots just a few minutes after contacting a suspicious person in a car in the parking lot Friday morning, police said.
It was around 7 a.m. when two security officers approached a 15-year-old boy seen acting suspiciously in the building's parking lot, said Shari Ireton with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.
The teen ran away, but then came back a short time later and got into a car in the parking lot. As the security officers approached the car, the teen backed out and struck one of the security officers, who in turn fired at the car, Ireton said.
The FDA laboratory, called the Pacific Regional Lab Northwest, analyzes samples of products for safety and compliance with regulations. It is located in a suburban business park
