Rioters in Portland threw fireworks at police vehicles at police building and two of them shoot each other in the end
Last night in Portland the chaos erupted when a group of about 75 rioters threw an explosive mortar at the police vehicles.
According to the Portland Police Bureau, the rioter used “commercial grade fireworks” against the police cars parked at the Penumbra Kelly Building at about 10 p.m. The group reportedly blocked traffic in the area for hours. Some of them were later arrested after they ventured onto the property.
