Shooting in Portland

A man was shot early Saturday on the Morrison Bridge during a protest march. The suspect was believed to be in a vehicle on the bridge when a confrontation unfolded with a member of the crowd, Portland police said in a statement. The suspect got out of the vehicle and fired multiple shots before fleeing.

The victim’s injuries were not life-threatening, and he was treated at a hospital.

Two 18-year-old men were arrested and charged with attempted murder and unlawful use of a weapon, police said.

Seventeen people were arrested in Friday night’s protests, police said.

Portland has been the site of the most violent anti-Trump demonstrations. Thursday night, a small group broke away and smashed the windows of businesses and a number of vehicles at an auto dealership.

On Saturday, police began tweeting photos of protesters and asking people to identify them so arrests can be made.
