Protesters gathered following the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse, 18, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Rittenhouse killed two people and injured another during a protest against police brutality in Wisconsin last year.
The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said the protesters, about 200, gathered by about 8:50 p.m. blocking the streets. By 9 p.m. windows were smashed. The protestors were throwing objects at police and talking about burning down a local government building in downtown Portland, KOIN TV reported. The crowd did not stay long and had dispersed by about 11 p.m. Several people were given citations, the Portland Police Bureau said, but only one person who had an outstanding warrant from another matter was arrested.
