[Ed. – “Summer of love” – Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.]
Shooting erupted early Saturday inside Seattle’s no-cop “autonomous zone,” leaving one person dead and another critically injured — and police fuming that they were stopped from responding by a human chain of protestors.
In chaotic scenes captured on video, police with riot shields attempted to enter the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone shortly after bullets flew at approximately 2:30 a.m., but were stopped at the “border” by protestors linking arms. …
Both victims were driven by private vehicles to a local hospital, according to the Associated Press.
A high-ranking police source told The Post that cops were not only blocked from reaching the victims at the scene, but were confronted by armed protestors at Harborview Medical Center and kept from entering.
