Police are investigating a third shooting in the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) zone.
This latest incident comes less than 48 hours after another shooting left a 17-year-old injured and 72 hours after a shooting left a 19 year-old-dead and another person injured.
Unlike the previous incidents, Seattle police were able to access and secure the scene so Medic One could respond. However, it appears that the scene may have been an agreed upon staging point outside the CHOP according to Seattle Fire Department.
The shooting allegedly occurred between near the intersection of 11th Ave and East Denny Way near Cal Anderson Park but the exact location is unclear at this time . The 30 year old victim was transported to Harborview Hospital with non life threatening injuries.
In response to the weekend violence, during a press conference yesterday, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced that Seattle police will be retaking the East Precinct inside the CHOP. The mayor did not lay out a plan or a timeline for this to happen but said it would be done peacefully.
Since the announcement, occupiers of the CHOP have been seen practicing sit-ins to resist as well as forming human chains around the East Precinct and repositioning the barriers installed by the Department of Transportation last week to extend the perimeter of the CHOP.
