Mayor Jenny Durkan ONLY called for this to be shut down after they came after her!
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) indicates the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) will be shut down following the shootings that occurred on Saturday and Sunday of Father’s Day Weekend.
Breitbart News reported that people were shot, one fatally, inside CHAZ early Saturday morning.
The Associated Press reported that the deceased person was 19 years old and the wounded person is in critical condition. The Guardian quoted police union president Mike Solan noting that he feared officers were in danger simply by responding to the shootings.
He said, “The community is at grave risk and the men and the women that provide that public safety service, they’re at grave risk as well.”
Another shooting occurred in CHAZ on Sunday night, leaving a 17-year-old with a gunshot wound to his arm.
Mayor Durkan reacted to the shootings by noting that CHAZ has grown less safe instead of safer over time and the effect on the surrounding community has not been positive.
She said, “The cumulative impacts of the gatherings and protests and the nighttime atmosphere and violence has led to increasingly difficult circumstances for our businesses and residents. The impacts have increased and the safety has decreased.”
Durkan said she will announce her plans for CHAZ on Monday.
