From KOMO in Seattle:

Police investigate shooting during ugly University of Washington confrontation

by KOMO Staff Friday, January 20th 2017

SEATTLE — A protest at the University of Washington over a controversial speaker turned ugly Friday night. Seattle police report that one person had been shot in the stomach and had to be removed from the crowd.

The person was shot behind Kane Hall. Seattle Fire said the victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center with possible life-threatening injuries.

The crowd mushroomed in size as hundreds of protesters from a Westlake Plaza protest and march arrived at Red Square on the UW campus.

So that proves Putin is somehow behind this riot: “Red Square.”

QED

Police were refusing to let people in. Several police were being hit with paint balloons, police said. One young man was hit in the face.

The young man claimed he was pulled into a crowd and then beaten for wearing a hat in support of Trump.

“The beat him like a bunch of pirhanas, they just attacked my son,” said his father. “I tried to get in there and tried to defend him and they started slugging me too.”

“I seriously stood on the edge, just trying to listen to what they were saying,” said the man. “I did nothing to aggitate them. The most I did was stand up there, wearing this hat. All I wanted to do was hear what they were chanting about and read their signs.”

“They took his hat from him,” said the father. “When he went to reach for it they just stated beating the hell out of him.”

Alt-Right speaker Milo Yiannopoulos, a writer for the conservative website Breitbart, was scheduled to speak at 7:30 p.m. …

Protesters then started chanting “Shut it down” in an effort to get police and the university to cancel the speech, while people waiting to get inside chanted, “let us in!”
