One person has died and a 14-year-old teenager was seriously injured after being shot in the Seattle Capitol Organized Protest (CHOP) area, as reported by the Seattle police. It is the second fatal shooting in the area after another man’s death on June 20.

“When the investigators arrived, they found a white Jeep Cherokee full of bullets on 12th Avenue,” said Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best, according to CNN. “They told us there were two men in the vehicle and they had both been hit,” he added.

The two were transferred to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition between 3.15am and 3.30pm Monday, according to a hospital spokeswoman, Susan Gregg. In the end, the man died and the boy is still in a critical condition.

This was the fifth shooting in two weeks in the CHOP zone and the second with fatal consequences, and the chief of police has signaled that it is time for people to leave the area. “Many people have been injured and we need to do something about it. We are asking people to leave the area for safety. It is completely irresponsible for this trend to continue,” he said.

The CHOP zone is part of downtown Seattle, about six blocks, and is used as a starting point for demonstrations to protest police brutality. Police were forced to leave the Eastern District on June 8 after days of violent clashes with thousands of protesters.

These protests are part of the wave of demonstrations against institutional racism and police brutality that erupted following the death on May 25 of African-American George Floyd, who died after nearly nine minutes of drowning by a police officer who caught his neck with his knee held and against the floor.
