PORTLAND—Hundreds of Trump supporters, some of them armed, converged on Portland late Saturday and faced off against anti-racist protesters as part of a "cruise rally" that resulted in a spate of violent clashes and at least one fatal shooting.

Portland Police confirmed on Twitter that the shooting is being investigated as a homicide. "On Saturday, August 29, 2020 at 8:46p.m., Portland Police officers heard sounds of gunfire from the area of Southeast 3rd Avenue and Southwest Alder Street. They responded and located a victim with a gunshot wound to the chest. Medical responded and determined that the victim was deceased," a statement says. "No suspect information is being released at his time."

Police have also not confirmed if the shooter or victim were related to the protests, but multiple videos on social media suggest that they were.
