A report from Seattle's own The Stranger adds that the incident occurred in the Capitol Hill area, with Seattle Fire officials later stating they had responded to a 27-year-old man who was shot at 11th Ave. and Pine St. on Sunday. Per the department, the victim was in stable condition.
"Everybody's here for the same reason, for the most part," witness Brandon Mulhorn, who is said to have been standing mere feet away from the victim (referred to here as Daniel), told Jasmyne Keimig and Rich Smith.
Protests have continued nationwide following the murder of George Floyd. Police in many cities have responded with downright harrowing displays of force, only further proving the point that it's time to defund.
On Monday, a King County District Court judge found probable cause to hold Fernandez in jail on investigation of first-degree assault. His bail has been set at $150,000 after being lowered from $350,000.
