Shots fired during Proud Boys, Antifa clash in Portland

Portland, Oregon descended into violence on Sunday, as intense clashes broke out between far-right and left-wing groups.

One man was arrested for firing a gun at demonstrators, a car was broken into, and an ambulance truck was flipped.

Luckily, no injuries have been reported.

Portland has become a magnet for clashes between political extremists over the last year.

Earlier this month, a black-clad antifa group and a group wearing the colors of the far-right Proud Boys exchanged shots of pepper spray and paintballs, according to local media.

Sunday’s protests came on the anniversary of a clash last year following the murder of George Floyd, a Black man killed by a Minneapolis police officer.

That brawl resulted in the fatal shooting of a right-wing protester who was suspected to have been killed by a self-declared anti-fascist named Michael Reinoehl.

Reinoehl was later shot and killed by police in Washington state as they tried to arrest him.
