One Dead, One Critical After Shooting At Seattle’s CHOP Protest Zone

One man has died and another remains hospitalized in critical condition following the latest shooting in Seattle's Capitol Hill Organized Protest, or CHOP.

City efforts to dismantle the CHOP were thwarted Friday when protesters laid down in the street to block Seattle Department of Transportation crews and heavy machinery from removing barricades around the occupied zone. Crews left after two hours without removing the barricades.

Negotiations between city leadership and organizers over the weekend did not prove fruitful, as hundreds of protesters have reportedly refused to leave the Capitol Hill area.
