Protesters clash in NE Portland; shots fired near demonstrators downtown

A man fired a handgun near demonstrators in downtown Portland Sunday evening as demonstrations splintered across the city, with an earlier clash involving right-wing protesters using paintball guns and fireworks against left-wing counterprotesters in Northeast Portland.

Zane Sparling, a reporter for KOIN’s news partner the Portland Tribune, witnessed the shooting event and recorded video of a man firing three shots from a handgun near Southwest 2nd Avenue and Southwest Yamhill Street shortly before 6 p.m. Bystanders told him the shooter pulled the gun as protesters gathered downtown.
