Man Arrested After Gunshots Fired Across Streets of Portland

A man was arrested on August 22 after gunshots were fired in downtown Portland, Oregon, according to local news.

The incident took place hours after opposing groups used fireworks and bats during clashes in the city, but police told KATU that there was no confirmed connection to any events in the area that day.

Mason Lake recorded this footage at the scene, and told Storyful that the suspect was “threatening POC people and showing racially hateful imagery to them before opening fire.”
