PORTLAND, Ore. (AP)-- Police forced protesters away from a law enforcement building early Sunday in Portland.
News outlets report demonstrators apparently had plans to march from a park to the building. Then, a standoff between the group and officers took place on a bridge along the way and the demonstrators retreated.
But, they later showed up at the building anyways. Police say officers were hit with rocks, bottles, and other objects. A riot was declared. The unrest followed dueling demonstrations by right-wing and left-wing protesters that turned violent Saturday afternoon.
Violent demonstrations have gripped Portland for months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
