An early Saturday morning shooting at the CHAZ, er, CHOP zone in Seattle left one man dead and another in critical condition. Police couldn’t get in due to the mob, so private people transported the victims to Harborview Medical Center, which is nearby. The CHOP shooting is just one example of the need for law enforcement.
Lorenzo Anderson, aka Lil Mob, 19, a local rapper, was killed while another unidentified person is recovering from life-threatening injuries at Harborview Medical Center. Some protesters believe that a right wing person must have sneaked in and shot him, others heard nothing about that, according to KIRO.
One protester thought police and EMTs should have been allowed inside, another said no “we can police ourselves.” Good job. The shooter is still at large. Is this dissension in the ranks?
SEATTLE SHOOTING: The deadly shooting happened at about 2:30 a.m. in the area near downtown known as CHOP, which stands for “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest," police said. Officials have no description of the shooter(s) #8NN https://t.co/cK6Vu8oh74

Seattle PD wrote about the CHOP shooting:
Homicide detectives are investigating following a fatal shooting that occurred early Saturday morning at 10th Avenue and East Pine Street. One man was declared deceased 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. 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.
Anyone with information about this shooting, or who may have video, is asked to contact the Seattle Police Department’s Violent Crime tip line at (206) 233-5000.
The following video is from Seattle PD body cameras and other “open source” videos and shows them met with a violent mob.

So the shooter is still at large, probably somewhere in the reaches of CHOP. Police are “investigating” from afar. The CHOP zone reportedly has volunteer “medics.”
Police pulled back from their East Precinct weeks ago, leaving the Marxist/Communist/Anarchists in charge of the police station. Did they manage to clean out the armory before they left? It’s a question. The Seattle Mayor thinks it’s a “summer of love.” Wonder what she thinks now after this homicide.
Safety is the one thing still missing in their autonomous zone – from dragging people out of the “zone” to shooting each other. Perhaps this will teach these anarchists how important civilized society is…or not.
