Seattle police say they are investigating a shooting that occurred around 4:37 a.m. Tuesday on Capitol Hill at 11th Avenue and East Denny Way, near the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) area.

The victim, a man in his 30s, was brought to Harborview Medical Center’s emergency room by Seattle Medic One around 5 a.m., according to hospital spokesperson Susan Gregg.


On its blotter, the Seattle Police Department said officers and Seattle Fire Department medics staged nearby and met the victim outside CHOP. The victim was shot in the calf, police said.

“The victim refused to provide any information about the circumstances surrounding the shooting or a suspect description to officers,” police said.

There were additional reports of shots fired in the CHOP around the same time, but no additional victims were confirmed, police said.  

The man was in satisfactory condition as of 7:55 a.m., according to a statement from Gregg, which noted no other patients had arrived at Harborview from the shooting.

The incident comes on the heels of two weekend shootings in the area: One early Saturday morning that killed 19-year-old Lorenzo Anderson and injured a 33-year-old man, and one Sunday night that injured a 17-year-old boy.
