Deadly shooting near Seattle protest zone; Jonathan Hunt has the latest.

One man has died and another remains hospitalized in critical condition Monday following the latest shooting near Seattle's Capitol Hill Organized Protest, or CHOP.

Two males suffering gunshot wounds arrived at Harborview Medical Center's Emergency Department.

The shooting victim who arrived at the hospital at 3:30 a.m. from the CHOP area on Capitol Hill in Seattle has unfortunately died, Susan Gregg, a hospital spokeswoman, told Fox News. He was transported to the hospital via Seattle Fire Department medics.

The other male arrived at about 3:15 a.m. by private vehicle. He remains in critical condition in the intensive care unit.

The Seattle Police Department said officers were investigating a shooting near 12 Avenue and Pike Street, where two people were reported injured.

That corner is about two blocks away from Cal Anderson Park, where protesters initially camped out in tents to occupy the area first referred to as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ.

The encampment has become more difficult to manage, drawing violence and a large homeless population since the onset of the occupation three weeks ago.

Organizers on Sunday said they're seeking to move into the abandoned East Precinct, where most protest leadership have already taken up shelter, as part of an effort to secure their best bargaining chip in convincing city officials to act on police reform and other demands, the Seattle Times reported.

City efforts to dismantle the CHOP were thwarted Friday when protesters laid down in the street to block Seattle Department of Transportation crews and heavy machinery from removing barricades around the occupied zone. Crews left after two hours without removing the barricades.

Negotiations between city leadership and organizers over the weekend did not prove fruitful, as hundreds of protesters have reportedly refused to leave the Capitol Hill area.

This is not the first shooting linked to the CHOP. The first fatality was recorded on June 20 when a 19-year-old protester was shot around 2:30 a.m. near Cal Anderson Park on 10th Avenue and East Pine Street inside the area referred to as the CHOP. Another man was injured in the incident.

"Officers attempted to locate a shooting victim but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers' safe access to the victims," Seattle Police Department said in a press release at the time.

"Officers were later informed that the victims, both males, had been transported to Harborview Medical Center by CHOP 'medics,'" it continued. "Officers responded to Harborview and were informed that one of the victims, a 19-year-old male, had died from injuries."

The death prompted Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan to announce last week the city would begin efforts to dismantle the CHOP, asking organizers to convince protesters to disperse to avoid police intervention.

A 17-year-old was shot in the arm around 10 p.m. on June 21 near Cal Anderson Park.

"To ensure the safety of medical personnel, police staged with Seattle Fire at the edge of the CHOP area and were gathering information about where the shooting victim was located when they learned he had been transported in a private vehicle to Harborview Medical Center," a police press release said.

He has since been released from the hospital and declined to speak with detectives.

A man in his 30s was shot early June 23. Police received multiple 911 calls around 4:30 a.m. to report someone had been shot in the 1100 block of East Denny Way.

"Officers and Seattle Fire Department medics staged nearby and met the victim outside the area known as the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP)," a police press release said.

"The victim refused to provide any information about the circumstances surrounding the shooting or a suspect description to officers. Medics transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of a gunshot wound to the calf."

Seattle's progressive mayor is still negotiating with the representatives of Chop. Her only concerns are for them and she's trying to satisfy their wants and desires.

Trump is off topic

My only concern would be with the innocent homeless people who got caught in the middle of this mess.

And of course, the few people who previously lived in the area or had businesses there.

The truly honestly homeless innocents got out a long time ago.  They only wander back for any freebies that they can get.

I've spoken with a few of the homeless here in San Antonio and they all note that they try to keep to themselves as it's safer.  That's why they don't go to the "shelters".   Plus when they're alone, and a 'regular' sight, they admit that people (like me) are generally more generous.  I guess it's a time when fewer numbers are actually beneficial.

Honestly, I don't care.  In point of fact, it would probably be beneficial if they simply finished the job of killing each other off and then the area could return to a state of civility and calm, sans any parasite "occupiers".

At minimum it will end when the weather cools down.  

Then they'll all head back to grandma's basement to bulk up on Ramen, Spaghetti-O's and Slim Jims.

Never had a teacher who impacted your life in a positive way or challenged you to look at things in a different way? If not, did you home school your children given your lack of respect for the profession? How about those professors at obviously hold the institution in high regard...or is that just their football team?

Let's see - school security guards flee from active shooters while elementary teachers throw them selves in front of bullets.

Hire better security guards.  

Plenty of former military out there looking for jobs.

Well now, that's taking it to the extreme but the saying is so true in my experience.     It's not a lack of respect but rather an observation of reality.

College doesn't teach you how to do your job per se so why would you expect professors to be instantly good at those jobs?   I don't as in my experience they generally aren't.   One can be a great teacher but a shitty doer and quite often they are.   That's where the saying comes from.   It's pretty rare that one excels at both.     But don't take it personally.   I've had plenty of good teachers in my time and plenty of bad ones.   Honestly when people put all teachers up on such a high pedestal i wonder about that persons bona fides immediately.

It's just like any other profession.   There are good ones and bad ones.   They deserve no more respect imo than say the cop who protects you or the guy down at the water treatment plant that makes sure your water isn't poison.

A good teacher?   Worth their weight in gold.   A bad teacher?    Not worth a plug nickel.   Just like the bad cop or bad water plant worker.   Worthless.

I wouldn't be surprised if we were to find out she was involved in rioting herself back in her law school days - long before Barak Obama nominated her US Attorney!

You have to understand, they are all jerking each other off on Russia articles. Or saying I told you so on the abortion article.....because nothing changed, but they are sure they will someday, idiots.  The fucking morons are so easily duped by the simplest of shit, that's why they are retarded little lemmings.

The Seattle Police Department said officers were investigating a shooting

Why? I thought their services were no longer required.
