A man was shot in the chest with a crossbow on Thursday at a Seattle homeless encampment in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

According to the Seattle Police Department (SPD), around 12:20 pm, police officers responded to reports of an assault in the 800 block of Bellevue Place East. Upon arrival, officers found a man with a crossbow bolt sticking out of his chest.

The victim was allegedly involved in an altercation with the suspect. During the dispute, the suspect allegedly shot the victim with a crossbow then fled the scene, SPD reports.

Medics treated the victim at the scene and then transported him to Harborview Medical Center. Officers collected evidence at the encampment and the investigation remains ongoing.

According to Kiro7, a witness allegedly saw the victim standing before being transported to HMC. The extent of his injuries have not been made available.

This is yet another example of the criminal lawlessness embedded within  Seattle's many homeless encampments, which are at the height of violent crime in the city.

In 2020, Seattle City Council voted to disband Seattle PD's Navigation Team which was responsible for policing the violent and drug addicted vagrants.

Following the disbanding of the Navigation Team, it was revealed that former Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan utilizes the officers for her own personal security at her multi-million dollar home in an upscale Seattle neighborhood, leaving the rest of Seattle residents without protection from the transients.
