19-Year-Old Killed in Shooting in Seattle’s Autonomous “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” Zone

HeadlineJun 22, 2020

In Seattle, a 19-year-old was killed, and another person critically injured, early Saturday during a shooting in a part of the city occupied by protesters. A separate shooting late Sunday left another person hospitalized with gunshot wounds. Both shootings took place in the “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest” zone — a several-block area of Seattle taken over by activists earlier this month after police abandoned their militarized response to protests demanding an end to racism and police brutality.
