A protester was shot during an anti-Donald Trump march in Portland, Ore., where demonstrations against the President-elect have grown increasingly violent over the past three nights, cops said early Saturday, NY Daily News reports.
A gunman was driving by the protesters as they crossed the Morrison Bridge near the downtown area around 1 a.m. The suspect, described as an African-American male in his late teens, got out of his car following a confrontation with a demonstrator and fired off several shots, striking the victim at least once.
The suspect sped off as officers rushed to provide medical aid.
Portland Police Sgt. Pete Simpson told the Daily News that the victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital in stable condition. It was not immediately clear what motivated the shooting and the suspect was still being sought early Saturday.
