reddit comment on Seattle mayor orders "occupied" area cleared, police arrive

This is probably in part because of the incident where CHAZ/CHOP "security" killed two black teenagers on Monday. The 16-year-old died on the scene and the 14-year-old has since died in hospital. What happened was there was a drive-by shooting (the 5th CHAZ shooting) from a silver SUV, and then an hour and a half later CHAZ security opened fire on a white SUV. Here is a video with audio of the incident. Turns out they got the wrong guys, the two black teenagers were doing donuts in the park and generally taking the (possibly stolen?) vehicle on a joyride, but they weren't the shooters. Before the details came out CHOP supporters were bragging about how well they handled it.
