Shooting at Seattle's CHOP protest site kills one, leaves another in critical condition

Source: Seattle Times

One male was killed and another was wounded early Monday morning when they were shot in the protest area known as CHOP.

Seattle police tweeted the shooting happened near 12th Avenue and Pike Street. According to an email from Harborview Medical Center, one of the wounded males was brought to the hospital by private vehicle around 3:15 a.m. The second was brought in by Seattle Fire Department medics about 15 minutes later.

One man died and the other was in critical condition, according to the hospital.

Demonstrators have occupied several blocks around the Seattle Police Departmentís East Precinct and Cal Anderson Park for about two weeks, since the police left the precinct following standoffs and clashes with protesters calling for racial justice and an end to police brutality.

Why is CHOP still here? I'm willing to bet Mayor Durkan is going to have a hard time getting re-elected at this point.

2. WTF

How many shots were fired, I lost count. WTF is wrong with these assholes.


I think chop zone needs to be done.

But are plainclothes cops shooting people in chop to delegitimize the defund the police movement?

Cops would have a motive to cause this. If anybody can pull of a killing and get away with it,cops can.

4. I'm 100% with the protestors, but...

What is the point of CHOP? Seems stupid to me, unless I'm missing something.

Has any progress been made toward doing that?

16. Why hasn't the governor done anything about it then?

The Mayor needs to be over-ridden.

17. Honestly

I donít think they knew what to do. I live up the road in BC. Even to fair minded Vancouverites, the CHAZ/CHOP seemed a little crazy.

With that windbag shouting from the WH about sending the NG in, I think the mayor and governor didnít want to appear to be on his side. I think they just hoped it would burn itself out quickly and hopefully quietly. Clearly it didnít. They didnít have a good choice to make here.

Been by CHOP several times. Just a big homeless camp. Drugs, booze, filth. Ideology has left the zone.

19. Update: "CHOP security forces" have killed a 16yo and left a 14yo in critical condition

So they abolish the PD due to police violence and immediately become dispensers of ďpoliceĒ violence. This needs to be shut down now.

21. I seem to recall the ending of some book that was much like this

ďThe creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.Ē
