One man was shot and killed in downtown Portland as dueling demonstrations — one a pro-Trump car caravan and another a counter-protest mounted by various opposing groups — unfolded late Saturday.

Portland police said the man was shot around 8:45 p.m. near Southwest Third Avenue and Alder Street.

Next to the body was camouflage gear with infidel and thin blue line patches, which commonly indicate support for law enforcement.

The far-right group has been at the center of multiple Portland demonstrations that often culminate in violent clashes.

Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson said he had also seen the photo of the man killed.

It’s the third consecutive weekend competing groups have clashed downtown, events that have grown increasingly violent as Portland protests against systemic racism and police brutality stretch into their fourth month.

On Aug. 15, a person fired shots inside a parking garage shortly after dueling demonstrations came to a head in the afternoon. »

He faces charges of "usurpation of public functions", "threats", incitement to hatred", and "slander against authorities and public officials". »

Lawyers and lawmakers who've been trying to change Minnesota's forfeiture law say State Patrol held Dietrich to an unreasonable standard.

"If there's no lien on the vehicle, the police and the prosecutor get 100 percent of those proceeds," Ramsay said. »

But Trump has routinely shown a disregard for the law, sown chaos across the country, and promoted disorder in our society.

Throughout the Republican National Convention, a variety of voices cast the incumbent as the "law and order" president.

These speakers have assured people that Trump will keep law-abiding Americans safe, even if it means deploying US troops on our own soil. »
