Watch Mob Attack Police as They Try to Investigate Murder in CHAZ-CHOP


SEATTLE – Homicide detectives are investigating following a fatal shooting that occurred early Saturday morning at 10th Avenue and East Pine Street. One man was declared dead at the hospital and another male is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

On June 20th, at approximately 2:30 AM, East Precinct officers responded to a report of shots fired in Cal Anderson Park. This is inside the area referred to as the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP).

Officers attempted to locate a shooting victim but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers safe access to the victims [and carrying out any investigation of the murder].

Officers were later informed that the victims, both males, had been transported to Harborview Medical Center by CHOP “medics”.

Officers responded to Harborview and were informed that one of the victims, a 19-year-old male, had died from injuries. The other victim, also a male, unknown age, remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The suspect or suspect(s) fled and are still at large. There is no description at this time.

Homicide detectives responded and are conducting a thorough investigation, despite the challenges presented by the circumstances.

Watch this update from officers’ body worn camera footage and other open-source videos:
