At least one person has been injured in a shooting at an anti-Trump protest in Portland, Oregon. The protests, now in their third night, again turned violent with protesters throwing projectiles at officers and police deploying tear gas.

A man was injured in a shooting incident on Morrison Bridge in Portland, police confirmed.

“One person down. Everyone needs to leave the area immediately!” police wrote on Twitter.

A local witness, Cameron Whitten, told the paper that the incident took place when the demonstrators were going across the bridge. He then saw a car “with multiple occupants in it... traveling east” and one of them was holding a gun. He first shot into the air and then shot one of the demonstrators in the lower body.
