Shooting In Seattle Leaves One Wounded After Car Drives Into Protesters
Police arrested a man who drove his car into a crowd of protesters in Seattle on Sunday, apparently shooting and wounding a demonstrator who confronted him, according to police and eyewitness video.
Seattle Police Officers Guild President Michael Solan told 'Fox & Friends Weekend' that violence, chaos in Seattle's 'CHOP' autonomous zone cannot stand in America. Protesters gathered in front of the county courthouse in Bloomington, Indiana in response to the police's decision not to arrest white men who Vauhxx Booker says pinned him to a tree and threatened to lynch him in a wooded area near Lake Monroe on July Fourth — an encounter that was partially recorded and prompted widespread outrage on social media. At the protest, a red car stopped to clear a scooter from the road in front of it. When a woman placed her hands on the hood, they accelerated. One man has been killed and another was wounded in Seattle's occupied protest zone. (June 29) Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a Democrat, fired back at President Donald Trump in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo after Trump appeared to suggest he would intervene in the city's growing protests and called for law and order.
Trump also claimed that the protesters, who he called "domestic terrorists," have taken over Seattle.
The President has threatened to use active military to tamp down protests and has encouraged governors to deploy the National Guard to help assist with demonstrations.
