Updated: Shots Fired from Vehicle in the Middle of Demonstrators in Downtown Portland near Justice Center - 07/09/20

The original release had the incorrect date. Updated release with correct date below.

On July 9, 2020, at 1:15 a.m., during a downtown demonstration, a vehicle arrived in the area of the crowd. The vehicle turned onto SW Main Street and then attempted to turn around, going the wrong direction.

At this point, the demonstrators and the occupants of the vehicle began to engage with each other and several shots were fired from the vehicle as it drove away. The shots were directed into the air and not directly at anyone. Fortunately, no one was injured.

Officers in the area attempted to locate the vehicle but were unsuccessful.

Due to the demonstration, officers were unable to canvass the area for evidence until later. No evidence was recovered from the scene.

This is an active investigation and PPB is asking for the public's help. If anyone has information about the shooting, please call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

Enhanced Crisis Intervention Team officers disarm man through conversation (Photo) - 07/07/20

On June 27th, 2020 at 7:12 p.m., Portland Police Bureau Officers responded to the 1300 block of NE Siskiyou St. on the report of a person in mental health crisis holding a rifle, while standing on his porch. The man had previously threatened neighbors and was now talking to himself. Officers arrived and were able to get a view of the man without making their presence known.

Once the man was no longer holding the rifle, Enhanced Crisis Intervention Team (ECIT) Officers approached the man. The officers worked on deescalating the man and letting his voice be heard. After an extended conversation that lasted an hour and a half, the man gave the officers the rifle, an AK-47, and 141 rounds of ammunition. The man decided to voluntarily go to the hospital for treatment.

According to neighbors, the man's mental health had been deteriorating for a while and previous outreach efforts had been unsuccessful. The actions by officers prevented a tragic outcome and they were able to begin the process of helping the man get much needed resources.

Officers spoke with the man's mother and explained the next steps in process, as she was crying with relief. One concerned neighbor explained, "As a Black mother of a mentally ill son," she was "very afraid of what police action would be taken under the circumstances. Instead, we, the concerned neighbors, saw police action at its very best."

"This incident highlights the very dangerous and complicated calls our officers respond to regularly. It also highlights the mission our officers carry out to preserve life and maintain human rights. This call could have had a very different outcome. The training we provide our officers in crisis intervention enabled these officers to navigate a situation that involved race, mental health, and a rifle. I commend their work," said Chief Lovell.

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###



One main demonstration occurred in Portland during the evening hours of July 4 through the early morning hours of July 5, 2020.

Early in the evening, a large group began gathering in Chapman and Lownsdale Squares. For awhile, the group listened to performers and assembled in the area. Multiple members of the group began launching fireworks from Southwest Main Street where the elk statue used to stand. During this time, a man carrying a rifle was seen in the area of Southwest 4th Avenue and Salmon Street. Several demonstrators surrounded him, but left him alone and eventually he left.

Just before 10 p.m., demonstrators began blocking westbound traffic on Southwest Main Street. Demonstrators continued to shoot off fireworks from this location, as well as Southwest 3rd Avenue. A vehicle associated with the demonstration had a speaker system and false announcements were broadcast that appeared to impersonate the Portland Police Bureau's sound truck. Demonstrators began burning an American flag they hung from the Justice Center.

Around 10:30 p.m., demonstrators began shooting commercial grade fireworks towards the Justice Center and the Federal Courthouse. Several of the demonstrators were observed carrying shields. The sound truck admonished the crowd warning them to discontinue firing fireworks and incendiary devices at the two buildings. The crowd members were warned if they continued the criminal acts, they would be subject to use of force or arrest. Despite several admonishments, many of the demonstrators continued their illegal acts.

At 10:48 p.m., demonstrators continued launching fireworks and projectiles at the Federal Courthouse. Because of this, several windows were broken and fireworks and projectiles entered the Federal Courthouse building.

To protect the life and safety of personnel both inside and outside of the Federal Court House, just after 11 p.m., a riot was declared. Officers began dispersing the crowd moving demonstrators from the closed area of Southwest Broadway to Southwest 1st Avenue, Southwest Columbia to Southwest Yamhill Street.

As officers dispersed the crowd, demonstrators threw bricks, mortars, M-80s, and other flammables towards them. To defend themselves from serious injury, officers used crowd control munitions and tear gas at this time. Lasers were directed at Officer's eyes, which is unlawful.
Despite having moved from the closed area, demonstrators began to trickle back to Southwest 3rd Avenue, starting a large bonfire in the middle of Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street 1 a.m.

During the dispersal, numerous business windows were shattered by members of the crowd. Officers made several arrests, including one at Southwest Main Street and Broadway where a male fought with officers. Officers were able to get him in custody and recovered an illegally possessed loaded firearm and a knife.

PPB was only able to handle emergency calls only City-wide for several hours due to the need to deploy Officers downtown to assist with the riot. This impacted those requesting police service throughout the City. There was also a significant vehicle crash during the riot in North Portland involving a collision at a high rate of speed, numerous seriously injured persons, and an individual who had to be extracted from a vehicle (See prior release for details).

Between 1 and 2 a.m., some individuals launched fireworks, smoke bombs, and mortars at and near the Federal Courthouse. Crowd control munitions were deployed in the area.

The crowd continued to remain in the area and engage in riotous behaviors involving fireworks, lit fires, smashing windows, and targeting officers with dangerous projectiles. The closure area was extended to I-405 and Southwest 1 Avenue and Columbia to Burnside Streets.

Several Officers sustained injuries throughout the night, mostly due to mortars and fireworks thrown at them by members of the crowd, which exploded on or near them.

Most of the crowd was dispersed by 4:30 a.m.

Information about those arrested is still being compiled and will be made available at a later time. Over a dozen individuals were arrested.

"This is the second time in a day a riot was declared in Downtown Portland due to the activities of many that put other's lives at risk; this is unacceptable," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "Our officers are tired, but they are resilient. They will continue to be available every night to protect our community members as they swore an oath to do. I hope community members can support these hard working individuals and denounce the violence that has been placed upon them by those who wish to riot. The violence we have witnessed is contrary to the values of our City and the thousands who are hoping to move forward with systemic change. Our community deserves better than nightly criminal activity that destroys the value and fabric of our community."

The sound truck admonished the crowd warning them to discontinue firing fireworks and incendiary devices at the two buildings. The crowd members were warned if they continued the criminal acts, they would be subject to use of force or arrest. Despite several admonishments, many of the demonstrators continued their illegal acts.

At 10:48 p.m., demonstrators continued launching fireworks and projectiles at the Federal Courthouse. Because of this, several windows were broken and fireworks and projectiles entered the Federal Courthouse building.

To protect the life and safety of personnel both inside and outside of the Federal Court House, just after 11 p.m., a riot was declared. Officers began dispersing the crowd moving demonstrators from the closed area of Southwest Broadway to Southwest 1st Avenue, Southwest Columbia to Southwest Yamhill Street.

As officers dispersed the crowd, demonstrators threw bricks, mortars, M-80s, and other flammables towards them. To defend themselves from serious injury, officers used crowd control munitions and tear gas at this time. Lasers were directed at Officer's eyes, which is unlawful.
Despite having moved from the closed area, demonstrators began to trickle back to Southwest 3rd Avenue, starting a large bonfire in the middle of Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street 1 a.m.

During the dispersal, numerous business windows were shattered by members of the crowd. Officers made several arrests, including one at Southwest Main Street and Broadway where a male fought with officers. Officers were able to get him in custody and recovered an illegally possessed loaded firearm and a knife.

PPB was only able to handle emergency calls only City-wide for several hours due to the need to deploy Officers downtown to assist with the riot. This impacted those requesting police service throughout the City. There was also a significant vehicle crash during the riot in North Portland involving a collision at a high rate of speed, numerous seriously injured persons, and an individual who had to be extracted from a vehicle (See prior release for details).

Between 1 and 2 a.m., some individuals launched fireworks, smoke bombs, and mortars at and near the Federal Courthouse. Crowd control munitions were deployed in the area.

The crowd continued to remain in the area and engage in riotous behaviors involving fireworks, lit fires, smashing windows, and targeting officers with dangerous projectiles. The closure area was extended to I-405 and Southwest 1 Avenue and Columbia to Burnside Streets.

Several Officers sustained injuries throughout the night, mostly due to mortars and fireworks thrown at them by members of the crowd, which exploded on or near them.

Most of the crowd was dispersed by 4:30 a.m.

Information about those arrested is still being compiled and will be made available at a later time. Over a dozen individuals were arrested.

"This is the second time in a day a riot was declared in Downtown Portland due to the activities of many that put other's lives at risk; this is unacceptable," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "Our officers are tired, but they are resilient. They will continue to be available every night to protect our community members as they swore an oath to do. I hope community members can support these hard working individuals and denounce the violence that has been placed upon them by those who wish to riot. The violence we have witnessed is contrary to the values of our City and the thousands who are hoping to move forward with systemic change. Our community deserves better than nightly criminal activity that destroys the value and fabric of our community."

Two car collision on N. Marine Drive - Speed and Alcohol both factors - 07/05/20

On July 5, 2020 at 12:15am Portland Police received a call regarding a two car collision near N. Marine Drive and N. Bybee Lake Road. Witnesses reported there appeared to be injuries as a result of the crash.

Police arrived and determined two vehicles were involved in the crash. A gray Infiniti traveling westbound on N. Marine Drive collided with a red Honda making a U-turn in the intersection of N. Marine Drive and N. Bybee Lake Road. Witnesses told police the Infiniti was driving without its lights and was traveling approximately 100 miles per hour. When it struck the Honda the Infiniti became airborne and flipped at least once before colliding with a tree where it came to rest.

There were three people in the Honda all of whom were transported to the hospital.
There were two people in the Infinity both of whom were transported to the hospital. The Portland Fire and Rescue had to cut open the Infiniti to extract the passenger out of the car.
Despite injuries, at this time it appears that everyone is expected to survive.

The Portland Police Major Crash Team is investigating this crash. Police believe speed and alcohol were factors. There have been no arrests, but the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with video or information about this crash is encouraged to call Officer Garrett Dow at 503-823-5070.

$10K in Fireworks Intended to Benefit Youth and North Portland Community Stolen (Photo) - 07/04/20

Sometime overnight from July 3 to 4, 2020, an estimated $10,000 worth of fireworks were stolen from a container located at the Fred Meyer at 6850 N Lombard Street. The Peninsula Optimist Club operated this fundraising booth in collaboration with youth groups. The money earned from the sale of the fireworks was intended to directly benefit local youth groups and community organizations in North Portland.

This morning, volunteers with the Roosevelt High School soccer and baseball teams began showing up for their volunteer shifts at the firework stand. They were disappointed and saddened to learn all of the fireworks they were supposed to sell today were stolen overnight. The lock on the container was damaged and multiple cases of fireworks were taken. July 4th is the busiest and most productive day for firework sales for the club.

The cases of fireworks have distinct labels, including "Peninsula Optimists Club" and the Fred Meyer name and address on them (PHOTO).

"The Peninsula Optimist Club has been providing support for youth and community members for over 74 years in the North Portland Community," said Operations Manager John Teuscher. "To learn of the theft this morning is deflating and sad because everyone works so hard to make this happen. These fundraisers benefit families and kids who do not have the means to play sports. The fund helps to pay for equipment and fees so youth can participate in community sports."

"This theft has resounding impacts in the community, as the Peninsula Optimist Club is a prime example of a group who invests and supports the underserved in our community," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "I hope those involved will hear this and re-consider and return the items. Otherwise, if anyone has information about who may be involved in this selfish act, PPB is interested in hearing those tips. Please consider supporting this group or others on this holiday."

The Peninsula Optimist Club has two other fireworks stands open today; one is located at the Hollywood Fred Meyer and the other at the Optimist tree lot at North Lombard Street/Chautauqua Avenue.

July 3-4 Demonstrations in Downtown Portland - 07/04/20

A group of a couple hundred demonstrators gathered near the Justice Center on July 3, 2020. For several hours, the group blocked the street on Southwest 3rd Avenue between Southwest Main and Southwest Madison Street. During this time, a couple demonstrators set off commercial grade fireworks on Southwest Main Street where the elk statue used to stand.

Around 11:00 p.m., demonstrators began marching to Waterfront Park. For about 45 minutes, demonstrators rallied in the park. At 11:45 p.m., demonstrators marched back to Southwest 3rd Avenue and gathered in the street from Southwest Salmon to Southwest Madison Street.

Around 12:53 a.m., a few of the demonstrators began throwing rocks at the Federal Courthouse building. Some of these rocks broke windows. At around 1:30 a.m., some demonstrators began shooting the commercial grade fireworks towards the Justice Center. Many demonstrators were carrying makeshift shields and sticks.

Some individuals began dragging fencing material and barricades and constructing a fence in the area of Southwest 3 Avenue and Main Street. Several small fires were lit throughout the night, including some dumpster fires, but Portland Fire & Rescue personnel were not required. There were also several arguments and physical fights within the group of demonstrators, but they all broke up without police intervention.

In on-going efforts to de-escalate the situation, PPB members stayed away from the demonstrators, as there was not an identified life safety risk.

At about 4 a.m., the Federal courthouse was attacked. A riot was declared and efforts were made to get the crowd to disperse, including numerous warnings to leave the area or be subject to arrest or force.

PPB did not deploy CS gas at any point during the overnight demonstrations.

This is still an active situation and the area near the Federal Courthouse is still impacted, including Southwest 3 Avenue and Main Street. Traffic in the area may be impacted; use caution if driving near the Justice Center and Federal Courthouse.

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

A group of a couple hundred demonstrators gathered near the Justice Center on July 2, 2020. The group blocked the streets, chanting and speaking for several hours. Several demonstrators shot off commercial grade fireworks during the speeches. The tenor of the group shifted when demonstrators broke in to the north side doors of the Justice Center located on Southwest Main Street. Soon after, the group moved back to Southwest 3rd Avenue and broke glass doors on the Federal Court House building.

Around 11:42 p.m., Federal officers inside the courthouse came outside to protect the integrity of their building. While federal officers were outside, demonstrators began launching projectiles at the officers with sling shots. These projectiles included large rocks, full cans, and bottles. Demonstrators also threw lit commercial grade fireworks, which landed inside the broken glass doors of the federal courthouse. Simultaneously, demonstrators began setting a fire nearby on Southwest Main Street.

The sound truck made an admonishment telling demonstrators that they must cease the criminal activity of throwing projectiles and fireworks. Demonstrators were also warned if they did not cease the illegal actions and back away from the building, they would be subject to use of force, to include crowd control munitions. Even though the demonstrators were given several warnings by the sound truck, their criminal actions continued.

To protect the life and safety of personnel both inside and outside of the Federal Court House, at 11:52 p.m., a riot was declared. The sound truck admonished the crowd letting demonstrators know a riot had been declared. Demonstrators were told they needed to leave the area to the south and west immediately. If demonstrators did not leave the area, they were subject to tear gas and crowd control munitions. The sound truck gave this admonishment several times, however, demonstrators continued to stay in the area.

Officers began dispersing the crowd in an effort to move them from the immediate area. During this lawful action, the demonstrators were very hostile and violent towards officers. An open pocket knife was thrown at an officer, coming within inches from striking them. Demonstrators continued to throw large rocks and full cans, as well as shot off commercial grade fireworks towards officers. During this time, several arrests were made. Once demonstrators were at Southwest 6th Avenue and Southwest Main Street, officers disengaged the crowd.

Around 12:46 a.m., demonstrators returned to the west side of the federal courthouse. Once again, demonstrators were warned by the sound truck that the riot declaration was still in effect and they needed to leave the area. At this time, demonstrators started launching mortars towards the federal courthouse and a fire erupted inside of the building where the glass doors had been broken.

Because of this immediate life safety issue, officers once again began to disperse the crowd. As they dispersed the crowd, demonstrators continued to throw rocks, cans, and commercial grade fireworks and mortars towards officers. Because of the violent nature of the demonstrators while officers cleared the area, crowd control munitions were used and several arrests were made. As officers began to disengage the crowd at Southwest Main Street and Southwest Broadway Avenue, commercial grade fireworks were once again thrown at officers.

Several demonstrators trickled back in to the Lownsdale and Chapman Park but eventually dispersed over the next several hours.

No CS gas was used by Portland Police Bureau officers during this event.

Information on arrests is still being compiled and an updated release will be published when this information becomes available.

Shooting Investigation Underway in St. Johns Neighborhood - 07/02/20

On July 2, 2020 at approximately 2:41 p.m., North Precinct officers responded to the 8700 hundred block of North Swenson Street on reports of a shooting. A 911-caller notified dispatch that a subject had fired a gun at another person and then fled the scene eastbound.

When officers arrived on scene, they learned a victim who had been shot at also fled the scene with another person. Officers immediately began an extensive block search to locate the suspect. While searching the area, officers reported hearing a single gunshot. At this time, it is unknown whether the gunshot was intended to harm an officer or not.

As the search continued for the suspect, the victim called 911, letting dispatch know they were unharmed, and that the suspect was a person known to them.

At this time, the suspect has not been located and this continues to be an ongoing investigation. There is no known risk to the community.

If anyone has information about the shooting and has not been contacted by investigators, they are asked to call the non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

PPB Investigating Substantial Damage to Iconic Elk Statue and Park Bathrooms (Photo) - 07/02/20

From the evening of July 1 to 2, 2020, demonstrators gathered once again near the Justice Center. Many of them blocked the streets surrounding the Justice Center and some fires were lit on and near the iconic elk statue on Southwest Main Street between 3 and 4 Avenues. Additionally, substantial damage was done to the bathrooms at Lownsdale Square and Chapman Park (PHOTOS).

The fire damaged the stone surrounding the basin around and beneath the elk statue. The Regional Arts Council has determined the damage to the base is so severe, the statue has to be removed for public safety reasons. There is concern the elk statue could topple over and injure someone.

PPB is investigating the crimes committed. If anyone has information about those responsible for the criminal activity, contact CrimeTips@portlandoregon.gov

"Engaging in criminal activity including vandalism and property damage is not peaceful demonstration," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "We ask for the public's help in identifying and sharing information about those responsible so they can be held accountable."

5 Officers and 1 Criminalist sustained injuries during the events last nights, including some from thrown rocks and full beverage cans (PHOTOS).

"We have experienced weeks of demonstrations that have turned into almost nightly unlawful assemblies, civil disturbances and riots," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "We have had law enforcement facilities and personnel targeted with violence, including the barricading and burning of an occupied police facility on more than one occasion.
"Last night, another march occurred, this time in a residential neighborhood where many families were at home and some were likely sleeping. Some have said we are only protecting an empty building and the force used was excessive. My response to that is we would have seen one building lit on fire in a neighborhood where a commercial building fire could have led to residences being burned with families inside.
"Life safety for all is our number one priority.We are determined to protect our community. This is bigger than property; it is about human lives."

###PPB###

During the evening hours of June 30, 2020, demonstrators once again took to the streets of Portland. A couple hundred demonstrators began by gathering at Peninsula Park around 6 p.m. At approximately 8:30 p.m., the demonstrators began marching in a northwesterly direction towards the Portland Police Association's office in North Portland.

Around 9 p.m., demonstrators began blocking the road on North Lombard Street at North Campbell Avenue. While in the street, demonstrators began throwing projectiles at officers who were standing outside of the Portland Police Association office. These projectiles included rocks and water bottles. The demonstrators also shined green lasers in the officer's eyes.

At approximately 9:08 p.m., the sound truck made an admonishment stating an unlawful assembly had been declared and that the demonstrators needed to disperse to the east. The demonstrators were told if they did not obey the lawful order and begin to disperse, they could be subject to arrest or use of force to include crowd control munitions. Despite the admonishment, demonstrators continued to block traffic on North Lombard Street and throw projectiles at officers who were in front of the Portland Police Association office.

At approximately 9:19 p.m., officers began dispersing the crowd in an effort to move them from the immediate area. While performing this lawful action, demonstrators continued to throw water bottles, baseball sized rocks, and full cans. While officers cleared the area, some crowd control munitions were used. Once demonstrators were to North Fenwick Avenue and North Lombard Street, they began to move dumpsters and plastic trash bins to the street. The demonstrators attempted to set fire to the dumpsters and trash bins. During this time, demonstrators deployed orange smoke towards officers.

At 10 p.m., the sound truck continued to warn demonstrators to disperse to the east, however, they continued to throw full cans, baseball sized rocks, and water bottles at officers. The large baseball sized rocks hit several officers which required medical attention. At 10:12 p.m., demonstrators began lighting commercial grade fireworks and throwing them towards officers. At this time, a riot was declared and the demonstrators were admonished by the sound truck to leave the area immediately. Because demonstrators were throwing commercial grade fireworks towards officers, to protect the life and safety of police personnel, CS gas was used to disperse the crowd.

Over the next hour, officers continued to disperse the crowd to the east. During this time, several arrests were made. While performing these arrests, demonstrators continued to throw projectiles at officers, vandalize property, and set dumpster fires on North Lombard Street. A vehicle supplying demonstrators with supplies was also stopped during this time.

Around 12 a.m., the remaining demonstrators began marching southbound Northeast MLK Boulevard from Northeast Lombard Street towards North Precinct. Nearly 85 demonstrators took several lanes of traffic on Northeast MLK Boulevard and were accompanied by several vehicles. As the demonstrators arrived at North Precinct, the sound truck admonished the crowd, informing them an unlawful assembly had been declared, and they needed to leave the area to the north and west.

At 12:46 a.m., demonstrators set a large fire in a dumpster they had pushed in to Northeast Killingsworth Street near the north side of North Precinct. Officers began to disperse the crowd and while doing so, demonstrators continued to throw projectiles at officers. Most demonstrators left the area by 1:15 a.m.

Information on arrests is still being compiled and an updated release will be published when this information becomes available.

###ORIGINAL MESSAGES BELOW###

On Sunday, June 21, 2020, at 6:51 p.m., East Precinct Officers responded to a welfare check call at a residence in the 8400 block of Southeast 138th Drive. The Officers knocked on the door and saw a subject down in the house. They forced entry and saw an injured woman on the ground in the residence. They then heard what sounded like someone else in the residence racking a firearm (a distinct sound many firearms make when one is making a firearm ready to shoot). The Officers retreated out of the house to positions of safety and called for assistance.

While waiting for assistance, one of the Officers saw a male subject in the house with what appeared to be a firearm. The Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) were requested and responded to the scene.

There was a great concern for life safety of those in the residence, as well as the surrounding residential neighborhood. A shelter in place order was enacted for several blocks surrounding the residence for everyone's safety. The SERT team utilized armored vehicles to provide protection for the officers and the neighbors. As SERT Officers were getting positioned, some of them heard the sound of a single gunshot from within the residence.

A robot was deployed into the residence and an injured male was viewed on the camera in the house. Medical attention was provided and the male was transported to an area hospital. This adult male was later pronounced deceased at the hospital. An adult female was located in the residence and was pronounced deceased at the scene. There were no other persons located in the house.

During the investigation, it was determined that a bullet traveled from the primary involved residence outward, striking a neighboring house. No one was determined to be injured as the result of this bullet.

No Officers were injured or fired their weapons during this incident.

The circumstances surrounding this incident are being investigated by PPB's Homicide Detail. Detectives are working with the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office on this investigation. Further details will be released as appropriate.

If anyone has information about this incident who did not already speak with investigators, contact Detective Mark Slater at (503) 823-9310 or mark.slater@portlandoregon.gov

This is the 6th homicide in 10 days Homicide investigators have investigated in addition to other duties related to the nightly demonstrations.

Investigators determined the subject involved in the incident placed a backpack in the bus shelter and lit it on fire. At this time, it does not appear that there was an explosive in the backpack, but that some items inside the backpack burned, which potentially caused a reaction from the heat.

The involved subject was identified as 43 year-old Russell Brunette. He was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on one charge of Disorderly Conduct I.

Demonstration and Criminal Activity at Justice Center June 29 to 30, 2020 (Photo) - 06/30/20

During the late evening hours of June 29, 2020, demonstrators once again took to the streets of downtown Portland. They began by blocking vehicle traffic on Southwest 3rd Ave between Main and Madison Streets. Around 1 a.m., they moved to the 2nd Avenue side of the Justice Center and began applying graffiti to the building and blocked traffic on Southwest 2nd Ave between Main and Madison Streets.

Demonstrators began using various tools, including a 2x4 and a hammer, to break windows on the 2nd Ave and Main Street sides of the Justice Center. There were reports of people attempting to enter Central Precinct through the windows that were broken.

Officers responded and cleared the street. After the demonstrators retreated to Southwest 3rd Avenue, officers returned to the 2nd Avenue side of the Justice Center and attempted to clean up the debris that was left in the street.

At around 2:13 a.m., MCSO reported that demonstrators were again ripping plywood off of the building, PPB Officers deployed again in an effort to move the crowd away from the Justice Center. This effort was temporarily successful.

At around 0238, MCSO reported that demonstrators were stacking plywood and other flammable material in front of one of their egress doors. About five minutes later, they did the same thing to the 2nd Ave side of the Justice Center. Around the same time, they broke the windows to an office space housed within the same building, but were unable to make entry.

Officers were able to respond and clear the area, but not make arrests at the time. Some items were confiscated (see photo). There are many pending investigations from the past month's criminal activities in and around the downtown area. PPB continues to manage events and prioritize life safety and protection of critical infrastructure, in addition to managing calls for service throughout the City.

Several windows and glass doors were damaged and broken around the Justice Center building. Additional graffiti was also applied, which is in the process of being removed. The windows and doors are in the process of being re-boarded up.

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

A group of demonstrators started gathering around 7:30 p.m. on June 27, 2020 and began blocking the street at Southwest 3 Avenue/Main Street. They formed a human chain to pull plastic barriers out of the pit at Southwest 2/Salmon Street behind a former restaurant. The fencing and barricades appeared to be cabled together and were used to block off the street. A woman with a hand held speaker was heard calling for violent resistance from the crowd.

Warnings and direction were given numerous times from the sound truck and on social media including: the streets were open to vehicular traffic, to get out of the street, and not to block the street with barricades. The crowd remained in the street and continued to block the intersection with fence panels and barricades. Graffiti was applied to the Justice Center, the Federal Courthouse, and the surrounding area including several tags about killing cops. (PHOTOS)

Just prior to 10:30 p.m., an unlawful assembly was declared. Warning were again provided by sound truck and social media and a dispersal order was given, including notice that arrests, force, or crowd control munitions may be used. The crowd remained in the area.

Officers responded to the intersection and made efforts to move the crowd away from the barricades so they could be cleared and the street could re-open. During this engagement, officers had rocks, glass bottles, and paint thrown at them. Lasers and lights were directed at the officer's eyes. Crowd control munitions were used during this interaction, but not CS gas.

The barricades and materials blocking the streets were removed and officers began leaving the area. As soon as the officers left the area, the crowd moved back to the intersection and remained in the street.

At about 1:20 a.m., the group moved to Southwest 2 Avenue between Madison and Main Streets and began to block the Central Precinct door and the roll down gates. Warnings were again provided and arrests were made. During an arrest attempt, an officer was struck in the face with a skateboard and sustained minor injury. The subject who resisted arrest and assaulted the officer with the skateboard was arrested.

Two dumpsters were pulled from a nearby building into the street. An unlawful assembly was again declared and the area of Southwest 1-4 Avenues/Clay to Morrison were closed. The crowd was ordered to disperse. A few sidewalk garbage cans were set on fire. The closure area was extended to include the area up to 6 Avenue. Efforts to disperse the crowd were made when they did not disperse on their own; crowd control munitions were used, but not CS gas.
The crowd was mostly dispersed just after 2 a.m.

Eight arrests were made and information on these arrests will be released as it is available.

Multnomah County Sheriff's Office personnel were present and responsible for the County portion of the Justice Center. Refer to them directly for inquiries related to their interactions.

A group gathered near the Justice Center on June 26, 2020, and blocked the streets and chanted. After several hours, the tenor of the group shifted and some attempted to barricade the portico door on the North side of the building with plastic road barricades and spray painted cameras on the building.

###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###


One main demonstration occurred in Portland during the evening hours of June 25 through the early morning hours of June 26, 2020.

Early in the evening, a large group gathered at Fernhill Park and eventually marched towards North Precinct.

At approximately 10:00 pm, several hundred demonstrators began gathering outside North Precinct near Northeast Emerson Street and Northeast Martin Luther King Boulevard. Demonstrators arrived with supplies to build a fence and began erecting one which stretched from the south side of North Precinct to the north side of the Boys and Girls Club. While building the fence, demonstrators blocked northbound traffic at Northeast MLK Boulevard. During this time, demonstrators began throwing projectiles at police including glass bottles.

By 11:00 p.m., demonstrators began moving dumpsters and other large barriers around North Precinct. Some demonstrators began ramming the dumpsters into large garage doors located on the west side of the North Precinct in an attempt to breach the building. Demonstrators were not successful at breeching the doors so they turned their attention to barricading exit doors so officers inside the building, as well as people in custody, could not get out (photo).

By 12:00 a.m., a demonstrator in the crowd outside North Precinct began yelling over a bullhorn that they were "going to burn the building down". Several demonstrators in the crowd were wearing masks and yielding shields. Fireworks were thrown at Officers over the barricade they had built on Northeast Emerson Street.

Around 1:00 a.m., there were still several hundred demonstrators in the crowd surrounding North Precinct. Due to life safety issues, the sound truck made an admonishment stating an unlawful assembly had been declared, instructing the crowd they needed to leave the area immediately or they could be subject to use of force or arrest.

At approximately 1:21 a.m., officers began dispersing the crowd in an effort to move them from the immediate area. While performing this lawful action, demonstrators fought with officers. Furthermore, demonstrators shot officers with paintball rounds, causing officers not to be able to see out of their face shields. Around 1:40 a.m., a mortar was launched on to the roof of North Precinct. During this time, crowd control munitions were deployed.

By 2:14 a.m., demonstrators had set the north side of North Precinct on fire. To protect the life and safety of police personnel and community members inside the precinct, CS gas was used to disperse the crowd. Several demonstrators picked up the canisters of CS gas and threw it at the police.

Around 2:56 a.m., demonstrators began looting and setting fire to businesses in the area. Several business windows were broken and fires were set to property. By 3:30 a.m., a majority of the crowd had dispersed.

Numerous officers sustained minor injuries. One officer was taken to the hospital for a more serious injury. All officers are expected to make a full recovery.

4 arrests were made over the course of the evening, including arrests for assaults or attempted assaults on Police Officers. Information on arrests is still being compiled and an updated release will be published when this information becomes available.

The dynamics of the demonstrators during this incident were more aggressive and violent than those seen in past weeks.

Anyone with information about individuals who committed criminal activity at any event is asked to share that information with the Portland Police Bureau. Information can be sent via email to CrimeTips@portlandoregon.gov.

PPB's North Precinct Officers Respond to Shots Fired; 2 Arrested, 2 Firearms Seized (Photo) - 06/25/20

On June 25, 2020, at 1.41 a.m., North Precinct officers responded to the 12300 block of NE Sandy on reports of shots fired.

Arriving officers were flagged down by a 911-caller who had been parked in a vacant business parking lot where the shots had been fired. The 911-caller told responding officers he heard approximately 30 gunshots coming from the center of the parking lot. Just prior to hearing the gunshots, three vehicles associated with the gunshots were reportedly doing cookies in the parking lot. The vehicles were no longer at the location. Officers checked the area for evidence of gunfire and located two .40 caliber casings and four 9mm casings. Officers collected the casings for evidence.

At approximately 2:49 a.m., an officer in the area of the 12000 block of NE Sandy heard several more shots coming from the same prior area. Several officers responded to the location and the original 911-caller called back to say the vehicles were back in the parking lot.

Arriving officers developed a plan to address the three vehicles in the parking lot. With the help of the Portland Police K9 unit along with East Precinct patrol officers, eleven occupants between the three vehicles were contacted. Officers learned there were cartridges and spent casings inside one of the vehicles, as well as a 40 caliber semi-automatic pistol with 30 round magazine and a 9mm semi-automatic pistol with drum style magazine. Both firearms and magazines were taken for evidentiary purposes. There were no victims of gunfire and no known damage to property.

31-year-old Ruthkeyshia Yonell Smith was charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon and booked in to the Multnomah County Detention Center. 19-year-old Medero Prince Moon Jr. was cited and released on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant.

Subject Associated with Demonstrations Cited for Criminal Charges Related to Firearm (Photo) - 06/24/20

On June 23, 2020 at approximately 7:37 p.m., Central Precinct officers learned of an unsecured rifle, leaning against a vehicle, on the 300 block of Southwest Main Street.

For at least 20 minutes, without anyone in control of it, the rifle leaned against a vehicle (photo). The vehicle was parked in an area associated with demonstration activity and several demonstrators were in the near vicinity of the vehicle and rifle.

The owner of the rifle, 22-year-old, Isaac J. Schott, had been previously contacted over the last several weeks during demonstrations, however, had not been violating any laws during those contacts. As officers began to develop a response plan to address the rifle, officers learned two subjects other than the rifle owner took control of the rifle. One subject appeared to point the rifle at the Hatfield Federal Courthouse while the other subject pointed the rifle northbound on Southwest 3rd Avenue.

Several officers approached Schott and the subjects who had been seen handling the rifle. As officers approached Schott, they noticed he had slung the rifle across his chest. The two subjects who had handled Schott's rifle walked off as officers approached.

Schott was criminally cited for Disorderly Conduct II and Menacing due to staffing constraints at the time. The rifle was taken as evidence. There was no identified on-going risk to the community related to this incident.

The first subject is depicted as a male wearing gray sweat pants and no shirt (photo). The second subject is depicted as a male wearing a tan jacket and blue jeans (photo).

If anyone has information regarding the identity of the two subjects holding the rifle, they are requested to share that information with the Portland Police Bureau. Information can be sent via email to CrimeTips@portlandoregon.gov.

Major Crash Team Investigates Crash in Sullivan Gulch Neighborhood - 06/23/20

On June 22, 2020, at approximately 2:35 p.m., North Precinct officers responded to the 1600 block of Northeast Multnomah Street on the report of a bicyclist struck by a vehicle.

Officers arrived on scene and learned the bicyclist was severely hurt and unresponsive. Due to the severity of the bicyclist's injuries, PPB'S Major Crash Team responded and assumed the investigation.

The investigation suggests the bicyclist did not stop for a red light while travelling southbound on Northeast 16th Avenue. The driver of the vehicle, who was travelling eastbound on Northeast Multnomah Street had a green light. Due to two vehicles waiting in the left turn lane at Northeast Multnomah Street, it was nearly impossible for the driver to see anyone running the red light southbound on Northeast 16th Avenue. The driver remained at the scene and fully cooperated with police.

The bicyclist was transported to the hospital where he later died. The bicyclist has been identified as 37-year-old Troy Demont Calvin. Anyone who witnessed this incident or has more information is asked to contact Officer Garrett Dow at (503)-823-5070 or Garrett.Dow@portlandoregon.gov

Chief Chuck Lovell's Statement on Ongoing Demonstrations and Impacts - 06/23/20

Portland is experiencing the fourth consecutive week of nightly demonstrations following the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Our City has observed several thousands gather and march throughout the City in an awesome statement of unity for transformational change. These rallies and marches have been non-violent and impactful and we appreciate those who have engaged in the safe expression of rights to assemble and express free speech.

Unfortunately, there has been another group of several hundreds who have also gathered at a different location, but many of the group members have not engaged in lawful or constitutionally protected activities. It began when the Justice Center was targeted and sustained severe damage during a break-in and arson on May 29. Windows have continued to be shattered and officers have identified and arrested those responsible when they were able to.
PPB's Crowd Management Incident Commanders (CMICs) have tried a variety of methods to manage these groups at the Justice Center including:

* Attempting to speak to those in the crowd through the fence (which was reduced); attempts were met with objects thrown at officers,
* Withdrawing officers to non-visible positions,
* Requesting the crowd to self-manage those who are throwing projectiles or cutting through the security fencing,
* Providing repeated warnings to stop criminal activities or be subject to arrest, force, or crowd control munitions,
* Dispersing the crowd when an unlawful assembly or civil disturbance is declared and after repeated lawful orders to disperse, many do not,
* Making arrests and other strategies to try to increase public safety.

Rather than dispersing or following lawful orders, officers have been met with violence, including improvised explosives, rocks, glass bottles, ball bearings and marbles launched from slingshots, among other projectiles.

When officers were pulled back or out of sight in attempts to de-escalate the situation, the criminal activity often escalated to life safety issues, such as when fires were set next to buildings or when a business security officer was assaulted and injured.

Dozens of PPB and partner agency officers have been injured during the past several weeks, including sustaining concussions, a broken foot, lacerations, bruises, torn ligaments and more. We know some in the crowds have also sustained injuries as well. We are fortunate lives have not been lost despite the extremely hazardous events we have witnessed. Our primary objective remains the prioritization of life safety.

There are other costs and not all of them are financial. Our ability to focus on our primary work has been significantly hampered. This includes responding to calls for service. Many nights our officers, or partner agency officers who are covering calls, are only able to handle emergency calls and other non-emergency calls for service have to be significantly delayed or handled another time. Others have written to us about criminal activity in their neighborhood that is greatly affecting their livability, yet we cannot respond with appropriate resources. This is not the police service we strive for or the community expects.
Other important work is delayed as officers and investigators are unable to provide follow-up on critical cases because they are re-assigned to the evening events. Significant calls for service have not stopped; we have experienced six homicides in ten days, an increase in shootings, and other calls, such as domestic violence assaults, robberies, burglaries and traffic collisions.

Out of everything I have relayed here, the topic most will focus on is the financial impact. The full realized costs for the demonstrations are more than $6.2 million at this time. This does not include yet to be determined costs, including straight time paid to sworn and professional staff members who are on-duty, but reassigned to these demonstrations. It also doesn't include unrealized expenses around materials, services and damage repairs.

This is a staggering sum, especially when we know many of us would rather those funds be used for the reinvestment so many truly desire. There may be those who will attempt to blame PPB for spending millions during a time when there are calls to cut the Police Bureau's budget.
We saw what happened on May 29 when businesses were looted and burned; how many millions has our community lost financially as they have been trying to recover from the devastating impacts of the pandemic? We cannot afford to not respond with public safety personnel during this critical time.

I have been spending as much time as possible both in the community and with the officers who have been working for weeks on end. I hear many community members who want us to move forward with system change and accountability. Internally, our members want some time off to see their loved ones and engage in basic responsibilities that we all share.

We understand the community's desire for reform in law enforcement across the nation; we have already implemented many suggested changes. That work is outlined here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/762929

However, we know our work is not done and we must continue to meet the community's expectations. To move forward, we must shift our focus and resources into productive collaboration and actions alongside the community. We cannot do this effectively if the nightly criminal acts and violence continue to pose instability and threat to our community and critical infrastructure.

Two demonstrations occurred in Portland during the evening hours of June 22 through the early morning hours of June 23, 2020.

One group met at Jefferson High School and marched throughout the neighborhood for several hours. This event remained peaceful and did not require intervention by police. They dispersed without incident.

Another group gathered near the Justice Center. They marched in the street and blocked vehicular traffic on the Southwest 2nd and 3rd Avenue sides. Repeated warnings were provided via the sound truck and on social media advising the streets were open and if people remained in the streets they were subject to arrest or force. Initial warnings were mostly heeded and the majority of the group moved to the sidewalk.

The group went on a brief march away from the Justice Center, but then returned to the 3rd Avenue side and remained in the street again blocking vehicular traffic. The sound truck once again provided repeated warnings and when the group remained in the street, officers arrived and made several arrests.

A vehicle was parked unlawfully in a "police only" zone and had been warned to move. This vehicle was stopped and the driver was arrested; the vehicle was towed.
The group mostly dispersed at around 12:30 a.m.

Information on arrests is still being compiled and an updated release will be published when this information becomes available. No CS gas was used by Portland Police Bureau members during this event.

One main demonstration occurred in Portland during the evening hours of June 21 through the early morning hours of June 22, 2020.

At approximately 7:30 p.m., demonstrators began to gather on Southwest 3rd Avenue blocking traffic between Southwest Main and Southwest Madison Street. The demonstrators set up cones and sandbags across Southwest 3rd Avenue. At 7:57 p.m., a couple hundred demonstrators had completely blocked both Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street, forcing vehicular traffic to go the wrong way down a one way street.

Beginning at 8:21 p.m., the sound truck gave several warnings to the demonstrators. Despite warnings from the sound truck, demonstrators continued to block vehicular traffic on and off for the next hour. By 9:34 p.m., demonstrators were consistently standing in the street, blocking all vehicular traffic on Southwest 3rd Avenue. Demonstrators were told by the sound truck if they did not vacate the road way and proceed to the sidewalk, they may be arrested. Most demonstrators continued to stay in the street. At 9:41 p.m., officers began to arrest individuals still standing in the street.

At 10:09 p.m., officers left the area of Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street. As officers left the area, they were hit with projectiles and flashed with lasers. Around 10:50 p.m. demonstrators returned to the street on Southwest 3rd Avenue and a man carrying a rifle was spotted in the crowd. The sound truck once again warned demonstrators to stay out of the street. At 11:31 p.m., demonstrators began to move eastbound on SW Main Street towards 2nd Avenue. Once on 2nd Avenue, demonstrators began marching southbound towards the front doors of Central Precinct.

Around 11:35 p.m., demonstrators began tampering with the front doors of Central Precinct and several were standing in the street on Southwest 2nd Avenue. The demonstrators were given admonishment warnings from the sound truck to quit tampering with the doors and stay off of the street. Despite several warnings, demonstrators continued their behavior. At 11:41 p.m., officers made a targeted arrest, causing demonstrators to move back to the sidewalk. At 11:46 p.m., the west sidewalk on Southwest 2nd Avenue was closed in order for an ambulance to get to a person requesting medical assistance.

At 12:05 a.m., the demonstrators began marching back to Southwest 3rd Avenue near Southwest Madison Street. The demonstrators continued to disobey admonishments from the sound truck and stood in the street. At 12:36 a.m., Officers once again made targeted arrests of subjects refusing to leave the street. As officers made arrests, demonstrators threw plastic bottles at them.

By 12:41 a.m., 80-100 demonstrators remained in Champan Park. The sound truck reminded demonstrators that Portland Parks close at midnight and that they needed to leave the park. By 1:41 a.m., a majority of the demonstrators had left the area.

One main demonstration occurred in Portland during the evening hours of June 20 through the early morning hours of June 21, 2020.

At approximately 9:20 p.m., a couple hundred demonstrators began to gather on Southwest 3rd Avenue blocking traffic between Southwest Main and Southwest Madison Street. For a little over an hour, the demonstration remained peaceful.

Around 11 p.m., demonstrators began throwing projectiles at the Justice Center doors for nearly an hour. The projectiles included eggs and rocks. At 12:04 a.m., demonstrators knocked over the fence surrounding the Justice Center doors. This action caused deputies protecting the Justice Center to exit on to the portico. While deputies exited on to the portico, some demonstrators worked together to put the fence back up. While outside, deputies asked the demonstrators several times to not tamper with the fence and remain peaceful. At 12:21 a.m., demonstrators began throwing projectiles and pointing lasers at deputies.

As the crowd continued to throw projectiles at deputies, the sound truck gave a verbal warning to the demonstrators. Despite several warnings from the sound truck, demonstrators continued to throw projectiles such as glass bottles at deputies.

At 1:46 a.m., the sound truck gave admonishment warnings this event was an unlawful assembly and if the crowd did not disperse to the west, force may be used. Even though the crowd was given ample time to leave the vicinity, most did not. Officers and deputies began to disperse the crowd, moving demonstrators to the west. Officers and deputies continued to take glass bottle projectiles as they dispersed the group and crowd control munitions were used. Once the crowd was at Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Main Street, several mortars were thrown towards police and deputies.

By approximately 3:00 a.m., a majority of the demonstrators left the area.

Information on arrests is still being compiled and an updated release will be published when this information becomes available. No CS gas was used by Portland Police Bureau members during this event.

For 23 consecutive days this group has gathered near the Justice Center. Many have engaged in criminal acts of violence which has put life safety at risk, including the public, media, and law enforcement personnel. Additionally, there has been vandalism to property and disruptive behavior.

Subject Rescued from Crane in Downtown Portland - 06/20/20

On June 20, 2020, at approximately 1:34 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the 500 block of Southwest 10th Avenue on reports of community member who was in a mental health crisis climbing a high rise crane.

When officers arrived at the location, they observed a man who had climbed an eight story crane which was on top of a ten story high rise building. With help from officers assigned to PPB'S Air Support Unit, they were able to get a better visual of the man, who was moving to different parts of the crane.

With extremely limited staffing due to the ongoing demonstrations, officers began to develop a response plan to bring the man to safety. Without warning, the man threw a rope over the edge of the crane and began to fast rope down the outside of the crane structure. The rope ended nearly four stories higher than the high rise building's roof.

With coordination from the Portland Fire Bureau's Rope Rescue team, officers and firefighters went up the crane stairway in an attempt to bring the man to safety. Officers were able to communicate with the man in crisis, while coordinating efforts with the PFB.

The man was transported on a medical hold to an area hospital. The man is not being charged with a crime at this time and therefore will not be identified.

The Portland Police Bureau goes to great lengths to provide interagency response and assistance to community members in crisis.

Help is available for community members struggling from a mental health crisis and/or suicidal thoughts. Suicide is preventable.

The Multnomah County Mental Health Call Center is available 24 hours a day at 503-988-4888.
If you or someone you know is in mental health crisis please visit Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare's Urgent Walk-In Clinic. The clinic is located at 4212 SE Division and is open from 7am to 10:30pm, 7 days a week. Services are free and available to individuals of all ages.

Demonstrations in Portland June 17-18, 2020-Unlawful Assembly Dispersed-1 Arrest (Photo) - 06/18/20

Multiple demonstrations occurred in Portland during the evening hours of June 17 through the early morning hours of June 18, 2020.

One group of several hundred demonstrators assembled at Revolution Hall and marched across the Hawthorne Bridge to Waterfront Park. For over an hour, the group rallied, then dispersed around 9:30 p.m.

A second group gathered downtown near the Justice Center on Southwest 3rd Avenue between Southwest Main and Southwest Madison Street. This group blocked the street for nearly an hour, throwing projectiles such as oranges, at the Justice Center doors. Meanwhile, a third group started gathering in the Pearl District, setting up several tents near the 900 block of Northwest Glisan Street.

Around 10 p.m., the group that had gathered outside the Justice Center began marching in a northwesterly direction towards the group on Northwest Glisan Street. The two groups joined together on the 1000 block of NW Glisan Street.

Once both groups were together, the demonstrators on NW Glisan Street shined several lasers and lights at Pearl District buildings. The demonstrators set up several more tents and many people sat in the street. Around 11:50 p.m., demonstrators started moving dumpsters, pallets, and other items which could be used as barricades to surrounding city blocks.

Demonstrators caused extensive damage to buildings and businesses in the area. A man was observed carrying a rifle in the crowd(PHOTO). The demonstrators named this area an "autonomous zone." Over the course of the evening, several hundred demonstrators left the area, but several hundred remained.

At approximately 5:30 a.m., there were still an estimated fifty people in the area. An unlawful assembly was declared in the area of Northwest 11th Avenue east to NW Park Avenue and NW Irving Street south to NW Everett Street. The sound truck made announcements for those in the area to leave and for residents in the area to shelter in place. At about 5:40 a.m., Officers began clearing the area.

One arrest was made and the rest of the people in the area dispersed. 27 year-old Hailley Nolan was charged with Interfering with a Police Officer and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Clean-up for the area was coordinated and crews immediately responded to the scene.

No CS gas was used by Portland Police Bureau members during this event. There was no force used to disperse the crowd.

"I am proud of our PPB officers and command staff who carefully and safely dispersed this unlawful assembly," said Chief Chuck Lovell. "The actions taken by some to barricade City streets and begin the creation of an autonomous zone caused great concern for public safety. Emergency responders need to be able to respond to critical life safety calls. There are acceptable ways to express first amendment rights and this was beyond the threshold for what is acceptable for Portland."

Demonstration Update June 16-17, 2020-One Arrested after Vehicle Strikes 3 Pedestrians and Flees (Photo) - 06/17/20

Multiple demonstrations occurred in Portland in the evening of June 16 through the early morning hours of June 17, 2020.

One group of several hundreds assembled at Jefferson High School and marched to the top deck of the Fremont Bridge (I-405 Southbound). A traffic advisory was provided via social media. For over an hour, the group rallied, then dispersed around 10 p.m.
A separate group gathered downtown near the Justice Center at Southwest 3rd Avenue and Main Street. This group blocked the street and marched around to the 2nd Avenue side, which is the entrance to PPB's Central Precinct.

A little after 11 p.m., the flag was removed from outside the Central Precinct doors. The flag cord was tied from the door to a fire hydrant on the Southside roll up door to prevent it from opening. Additionally, the Central Precinct main doors were locked from the outside with a u-lock blocking anyone inside from leaving. This presented a life safety issue for those inside. The flag was lit on fire and one person was injured by the burning flag. Warnings were given and the crowd left the area. Officers removed the exterior locks and objects on the doors.

The group marched to the Pearl District and there were some reports of graffiti.
Just after 1 a.m., a vehicle encountered the crowd near Southwest 3rd Avenue near Alder Street.

On Monday June 15, 2020 there were several demonstrations throughout the city in different parts of town. Earlier in the day the larger fence surrounding the Justice Center was removed. A smaller security fence was left in place on the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office side of the Justice Center.

A group of several hundreds gathered at Revolution Hall and marched downtown to Pioneer Square where they rallied for several hours. The group concluded the demonstration and some left the area and several hundred walked to the Justice Center.

At Southwest 3 Avenue and Southwest Main Street a group of several hundred gathered behind the fenced area near the Justice Center. Some of the group threw projectiles over the fence including water bottles; lasers were pointed at officer's eyes; projectiles were slung at high speeds via sling shot like devices. Multiple warning were given via sound truck and social media to stop this criminal behavior.

At about 10:40 p.m., a crowd gathered near a fire that was lit near a building in the 800 block of Southwest 3rd Avenue. Officers responded to the area to provide security for the Portland Fire & Rescue personnel who responded to put out the fire. Projectiles including glass bottles were thrown at officers in the area. The firefighters extinguished the fire and the scene was cleared.

Due to the unsafe criminal activity, a civil disturbance was declared just after 11 p.m. and the crowd was advised to leave the area or be subject to arrest of use of force. The area of Southwest Naito Parkway to Broadway Boulevard and Southwest Lincoln to Harvey Milk Streets were closed. The majority of the crowd remained in the immediate area and officers arrived to disperse them. Projectiles, including glass bottles were thrown at the officers. Crowd control munitions were used and the crowd began leaving to the West.

During the dispersal, a Deputy was injured when a rock was thrown from behind, which struck the Deputy in the head (PHOTO). The Deputy was transported by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment.

At about 11:43 p.m., a business in the 900 block of Northwest Davis Street had a window smashed and items were stolen (PHOTO). Officers located and arrested some of the subjects involved in this burglary.

The crowd continued to march through the streets throughout the residential neighborhood in the Pearl District. Graffiti was reportedly being applied to walls and buildings in the area.
The marchers came back into the downtown area and more arrests were made.

10 arrests were made over the course of the evening, including several arrests for assaults or attempted assaults on Police Officers. Information on arrests is still being compiled and an updated release will be published when this information becomes available.

No CS gas was used by Portland Police Bureau members during this event.
