On Monday, a King County Sheriff’s deputy was shot while serving an eviction notice in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. According to law enforcement, three deputies were serving the notice, but when they encountered the resident being evicted, there was a shootout. The three deputies opened fire and one deputy was shot in the upper torso above his bulletproof vest.
The deputy who was shot was identified as David Easterly and remains in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center's ICU.
The Independent Force Investigation Team for King County on Tuesday identified the resident being evicted who was involved in the shooting as 29-year-old Eucytus Eucytus, formerly Nathan Stolsig, a transgender woman. The King County Medical Examiner confirmed that Stolsig died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Lilly Ana Fowler, the social justice reporter for NPR Seattle affiliate KNKX, posted after the revelation, “Spoke to Rachel, a friend of Eucy, the Ballard resident who died by suicide yesterday while being evicted by King County Sheriff's deputies. Rachel says her friend had tried to get help in paying rent but had exhausted all options.”
She also shared an audio clip of the friend who described the alleged cop shooter as “a peaceful, kind, vegan who liked to garden and would make soups from things that she grew in her garden.”
It is unclear if the garden referenced was at the home Stolsig was being evicted from for not paying rent.
In the thread, Fowler also posted a statement from the Democratic Socialists of America mourning their comrade that blamed the “capitalist housing system” for the tragedy while also omitting that Stolsig allegedly shot the deputy. The organization also urged “the media and law enforcement to stop mis-gendering Eucy, who identified as trans, and to stop calling her by her dead name.”
Fowler then posted a link to suicide prevention resources. Later in the day, Fowler retweeted an article from the Seattle Times entitled “Ballard eviction underscores process’s complexities.”
The social justice reporter was slammed on the platform for omitting the full details of the event, especially the alleged shooting of the deputy.
Fowler retweeted one commentor who posted, “Far-left radical shoots a cop, but @NPR and @lillyAFowler consider *the shooter* the victim,” and replied, “usually don’t respond to comments like this but have seen this assumption elsewhere. we know a King County Sheriff’s deputy was shot, but don’t know yet which gun bullet came from.”
Fowler added, "& yes, absolutely have compassion for a person who kills themselves at least in part because they seem to feel they have nowhere to turn & could soon be living on the street. never knew Eucy & won’t pretend to know what she was going through.”
On Thursday night, Tucker Carlson called out the omission by the social justice reporter for the taxpayer funded NPR affiliate saying, “so obviously this country has reached peak frivolity. The officer is in the hospital fighting for his life, but the debate is whether we're dead naming someone who shot him. So the people in that frame, and a lot of people actually who listen to dead NPR care more about pronouns than human life. NPR would rather, you didn't know any of this.”
