Teen boy killed in Seattle CHOP zone shooting

The person killed during a shooting in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Organized Protest zone early Monday was a 16-year-old boy, police said.

Witnesses said they had spotted a white Jeep Cherokee SUV, near one of the makeshift barriers around the protest zone, just before gunfire erupted at around 3 a.m., according to Seattle Police.

Callers to 911 reported several people firing into the vehicle.

Neither the 16-year-old, or, a 14-year-old boy also wounded in the shooting, were immediately identified by name.

The 16-year-old was pronounced dead at Harborview Medical Center. The younger teen was hospitalized for gunshot injuries and was reported in critical condition.

It appeared the crime scene was tampered with following the shooting, cops said.
