On the 95th day of riots and protests in Portland, Ore., a Trump supporter was fatally shot. He was identified by his “Patriot Prayer” hat and his shooting death was caught by multiple livestreamers.
At the moment of the murder, a voice can be heard to celebrate the death of a “Trumper.”
After the man was murdered, his death was celebrated as a victory over Trump, and the dead man was assumed to be a Nazi
It was shortly prior to this that an individual who was reportedly trying to prevent a mob from ransacking a gas station was termed a Nazi for his efforts, and chased off. The police can be heard instructing people to clear the area, but the crowd pays absolutely no attention.
These confrontations in Portland came after Trump supporters organized a caravan of cars and drove into the city earlier in the evening. Portland activists were not happy to see the crowd, there were confrontations between Antifa militants and supporters of the US President.
The pro-Trump caravan drew hundreds of the President’s supporters into Portland. Ensuing clashes, prior to the fatal shooting, saw Trump supporters use pepper spray and paintball guns to clear the street while Antifa militants responded by throwing objects, including bottles full of mysterious liquid back at them.
It was amid ongoing brawls, which saw Trump supporters isolated and assaulted by mobs of Antifa, a man who appeared to be wearing a Patriot Prayer hat, was shot and killed by an unknown assailant.
The Portland Police Bureau said officers responded to gunfire before 9 p.m. and found the victim wounded in the chest, whereupon they administered medical aid. The police determined that the victim had died and have not yet released information about the shooting suspect.
It was not immediately clear how the shooting transpired but witnesses speaking to The New York Times said that a small group of people were engaged in an argument with others in a vehicle when someone opened fire.
