1 Dead, 5 Injured in Mass Shooting

(FeaturedNews.com) – Violence in the city of Portland continues to be a concern for law enforcement. A busy weekend had them on their toes as they dealt with multiple shootings, including one involving protestors.

Police in Portland has two people in custody following a shooting that injured five and killed one person on February 19. The incident occurred around 8:00 p.m. at Northeast 55th Avenue and Northeast Hassalo Street. Protestors were meeting in Normandale Park to hold an event for Amir Locke, a young black man officers shot and killed during a no-knock warrant in Minneapolis earlier in the month.

Police said the scene was chaotic. Witnesses refused to cooperate, and people shared on social media to delete all posts, videos, and images from the night to avoid speaking with law enforcement. Accusations swirled online, saying this was a planned attack. Rumors also pointed fingers at Antifa as the instigators and causing the violence.

Portland Police tried to hold a press conference but couldn’t continue due to disruptions in the crowd. Eventually, they held a teleconference and said the issue appears to have been a clash between a homeowner and protestors. All parties had firearms. Lieutenant Nathan Sheppard confirmed the investigation is ongoing.
