What is going on here? Early Saturday morning two people were shot, allegedly inside the CHOP zone. One of the people shot was a 19-year-old man who died from his injuries. The other person was a man in his 30s who was taken to the hospital by CHOP medics. That second victim has now come forward and spoken to KIRO 7 news. His name is DeJuan Young and he claims he was shot one block outside CHOP by either Proud Boys or the KKK.
He heard the first shooting and decided to leave. He reached 11th and Pike when a group of men intercepted him and shot him.
“So basically I was shot by, I’m not sure if they’re ‘Proud Boys’ or KKK,” said Young. “But the verbiage that they said was hold this ‘N—–’ and shot me.”
He says the force was so great it pushed him onto the hood of a car.
“And they stood over top of me and continued to fire,” he said. “I tried to protect myself and got shot in the arm. And they got away.”
Young made a point of saying the shooting happened outside the CHOP zone:
