The mother of Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr., a 19-year-old killed in Seattle’s “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” (CHAZ) is suing the city, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Mass demonstrations and protests in the months after George Floyd’s death in May 2020 devolved into riots in many major American cities. The unrest was especially intense in Seattle, as armed anarchists seized control over several blocks in the city’s center. This cop-free area, first called the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) before rebranding itself as CHAZ, ultimately resulted in the death of Anderson as well as the shooting of several others but was defended by city officials.
