The teen killed during a shooting near Seattle’s Capitol Hill Organized Protest zone has been identified as Antonio Mays Jr., according to media reports.
Mays was shot dead early Monday morning after driving his Jeep Cherokee near one of the makeshift barriers around the lawless area dubbed CHOP, the Daily Mail reported.
Callers to 911 said they saw several people fire into the white SUV. A 14-year-old boy, who has not been publicly named, was also critically wounded during the shoot out.
New video released by Seattle police Wednesday shows acts violence inside the zone and gunmen prowling the streets on the night of Mays’ death.
Mays’ killing marked the second near the cop-free protest zone. A week earlier, another shooting left a 19-year-old man dead and a 33-year-old man wounded.
Cops finally moved in Wednesday to clear out CHOP, which was created around a deserted police precinct, after the city’s mayor issued a vacate order.
For more than two weeks, protesters have occupied several blocks around the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct, which was abandoned following standoffs and clashes with demonstrators calling for an end to police brutality after the death of George Floyd.
