The shooting in the Seattle protest zone killed one person



One person shot and killed in Seattle's 'autonomous zone'

“Officers tried to find the shooting victims but were welcomed by a crowd of violence which prevented officers from gaining secure access to the victims,” ​​the statement said. Police said they were later told that CHOP medics had taken both victims to the hospital.

Officers went to Harborview Medical Center where they were told that a 19-year-old man had died of his injuries. Police said another shooting victim – a man – remained in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The suspect or suspect is still at large.

“The homicide detective is responding and is conducting a thorough investigation, despite the challenges posed by the situation,” a police statement said.

Records of events

The police later released a video recording of the incident.

The video shows the early moments of the shooting, where gunshots were captured on security cameras. Then, a body camera video shows the demonstrators confronting the police when they arrived at the scene.

The video shows at least eight officers entering the area, some carrying shields, as protesters shout at them. An officer could be heard saying, “Please move so we can get to the victims. All we try to do is go to the victims and give them help.”

An observer was heard shouting: “You shouldn’t be here, they are gone, the victims are gone.” The other said, “Put down your damn weapon.”

The clip then shows the police leaving when community members continue to shout at them. Some were seen holding other protesters from officers as they headed for their patrol car.

When the officer wearing the camera pulled away, he shouted “Move, get out of the way” when the protesters crashed into the car.

Police climbed the East Precinct building in the Capitol Hill neighborhood and left it empty after tensions with protesters reached boiling point during protests over the murder of police George Floyd in Minneapolis.

On Monday, Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best denied the claim that officers in his department have been instructed not to respond to 911 calls at CHOP.

Best told CNN on Monday, “Seattle is not under siege and we respond to every call and every area of ​​the city.” He acknowledged that barricades in the zone could slow down police access.

When CNN visited the zone last Sunday, journalists found a festival-like atmosphere, with meditation and paintings. Some people in the zone openly carry firearms, which are permitted in Washington state.

‘Turn yourself in’

At Saturday’s CHOP, protesters expressed their sorrow over the shooting.

“When I woke up this morning and I learned it – it broke my heart,” a man told CNN affiliated with KIRO. “I like how it’s organized but last night – when I slept somewhere else – someone was killed.”

He appealed to those responsible for surrendering to the police, suggesting that protesters would take a tougher line: “Turn yourself in, because if you don’t … it’s better for the police to arrest you than they are.”

Others deplore the impact on the protest movement, saying, “Last night’s shooting will eliminate the message.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
