Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ divisive speaking tour, provoking shouting matches and fistfights among college-age fans and foes, has now degenerated to the level of gunfire. A man was in critical condition Saturday after being shot outside a University of Washington hall prior to the alt-right journalist’s speech there Friday night.

The 32-year-old victim was rushed to a hospital for emergency surgery after being shot in the stomach, police said. A person of interest in the shooting turned himself in to University of Washington police, and was held for questioning.


Black-hooded protesters were shown in videos sparking assaults outside Kane Hall on campus. Police had blocked the entrance after scuffles broke out over the Breitbart editor’s sold-out appearance.

When a group of protesters arrived after a downtown rally — where police had seized wooden dowels, homemade shields, flares, hammers and other items from masked people in the crowd — tensions increased. Protesters “began throwing bricks and paint toward police and others in the crowd,” police said in a statement.


"Seattle has a long, proud tradition of speaking up and speaking out, but we will not tolerate violence of any kind, “ said Seattle Mayor Ed Murray.

In a similar statement, Gov. Jay Inslee said, “I condemn in the strongest possible terms any act of violence, no matter in what name it’s being waged.” The Democrat added that the freedom of speech applies “equally to all of us — even to the people whose ideas we find abhorrent.”

Yiannopoulos, after hearing of the shooting, chose to go on with his speech. He told the Seattle audience he didn’t know if the victim died or not, but, Breitbart quoted him saying, “if I stopped my event now, we are sending a clear message that they can stop our events by killing people. I am not prepared to do that.”

The speech took place hours after President Trump took the oath of office in Washington. Stephen K. Bannon, former chairman of Breitbart News, is a senior advisor to the president.
