Seattle fire said the victim, identified as Daniel Gregory, was transported to Harborview Medical Center. Officials said he is in satisfactory condition.

Police said they recovered the gun and don’t believe there were any other victims.

Protesters have continued to gather outside of the East Precinct to call for systemic change following the death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody on May 25.

In a news conference that ended about 30 minutes before the shooting, police Chief Carmen Best and Mayor Jenny Durkan both said the ongoing demonstrations outside of the East Precinct have brought a number of challenges.
