WATCH LIVE: Seattle Police chief gives briefing after deadly shooting near CHOP

One man was killed and another is in critical condition after a shooting in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood Monday morning.

The Seattle Police Department (SPD) is investigating a deadly shooting near the “Capitol Hill Organized Protest” (CHOP) zone Monday morning.

Seattle police tweeted about the shooting near 12th Avenue and East Pike Street in Capitol Hill around 3:45 a.m. Police tweeted there were reports of two people injured.

Susan Gregg, a spokesperson for Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, said two men with gunshot wounds were transported to the hospital in critical condition.

One victim arrived at the hospital by a private vehicle from the CHOP around 3:15 a.m. The second victim was transported to the hospital by Seattle Fire Department medics and arrived at the hospital around 3:30 a.m. One of the victims has gunshot wounds to their hip, arm, and the temple.

Gregg said the shooting victim that arrived at the hospital around 3:30 a.m. died from their injuries.

A white jeep was towed away from the CHOP Monday morning while SPD collected evidence. Detectives interviewed protesters who said they were in the CHOP at the time of the shooting.

No word on any suspect descriptions at this time.

KING 5 New Day Northwest Producer Joseph Suttner lives in Capitol Hill near the CHOP and tweeted that he “woke up to what sounded like gunfire” just after 3 a.m.

This is at least the fourth shooting in or near the CHOP in nine days.
