The city previously witnessed violent clashes between the Black Live Matters protestors and police. President Donald Trump offered to send federal law enforcement personnel to the city, however, Mayor Ted Wheeler rejected aid from the president.
Live video shows the site of the shooting in Portland, where one man was killed as BLM protests and a pro-Trump rally were held nearby. It is not confirmed, however, if the fatal incident was connected to the demonstrations.
The city has suffered from 93 days of mass protests and riots since May when the death of African American George Floyd resulted in mass rallies against the police brutality across the US. Protesters attacked the federal courthouse in the city as well as police multiple times.
