The father of a 19-year-old man who was fatally shot inside Seattle’s Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone in June has filed $3 billion claims against local and state governments for allegedly allowing an atmosphere of “lawlessness” that resulted in his son’s death.
Horace Anderson, 50, lost his special-needs son Lorenzo Anderson on June 20 in a shooting incident that also injured a 33-year-old man.
“I just want to see justice for my son,” Horace told The Post noting that no arrests had been made yet for the killing. “Somebody has to be held responsible. Something is not right and my son should still be alive to this day.”
Lorenzo was shot multiple times and “laid bleeding to death in the Seattle streets with no one to respond,” allege papers filed with Horace’s separate $1 billion claims against the city, King County and the state of Washington.
Confusion and blockades led to a 20-minute delay before first responders finally arrived on scene — only after good Samaritans had already taken Lorenzo to the hospital, the claim papers filed Wednesday allege.
