There has been yet another shooting at CHAZ/CHOP in Seattle for the fifth time. Two people were shot. One of them has now died and the other one is in critical condition and may not survive. In all seven people have been shot within the occupied territory, two of whom are dead so far.

NBC reported:

One person was killed and a 14-year-old boy was injured in a shooting on Monday morning near Seattle’s self-declared Capitol Hill Organized Protest zone.

The Seattle Police Department responded to multiple reports of shots fired at about 3 a.m. near 12th Avenue and Pike Street. Police said callers had reported several unidentified people had fired shots into a white Jeep that had been at or near one of the barriers of the zone.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told the press

“Enough is enough here, “Two men are dead and a child, a 14-year-old, is hospitalized, and we don’t know what is going to happen to that kid.”

“Two African American men dead at a place where they claim to be working for Black Lives Matter. But they’re gone, they’re dead now and we’ve had multiple other incidents — assaults, rape, robbery, shootings — and so this is something that’s going to need to change,” she said.

On June 22nd Seattle government announced that the Seattle protest zone (CHAZ/CHOP) was being vacated, as of Monday morning evidently the area is still being occupied by protesters and gang members. Seattle is also facing a slew of lawsuits from local business owners and homeowners over the lawless environment of the protest zone.
