Portland is slowly becoming one of the most dangerous cities in the United States.

On Saturday night, a mass shooting left one person dead, and at least 4 others injured.

The shooting occurred near Normandale Park in Northeast Portland at around 8pm Saturday during a protest.

The protest was over the shooting of 22 year-old Amir Locke, who was shot by police earlier this month in Minneapolis.

The protest was allegedly organized by members of Antifa.

Few details have been revealed about the shooting, other than the fact that the one person who died was a woman.

Two suspects have also been taken into police custody.

The New York Times reported on the deadly shooting:

One person was killed and five others were wounded in a shooting on Saturday night during a protest in Portland against killings by police officers.

The Portland Police Bureau said a woman was dead when officers arrived. Two men and three other women were taken to a nearby hospital, the police said. Information on their conditions was not immediately released.

The shooting took place near a park in Portland that has been the staging ground for a number of protests against police killings in recent years. Neighbors said several shots were fired.

“I was sitting in the room talking to my wife, and all of a sudden you hear repeated gunshots,” said Jeff Pry, who lives in the area.

Our friends at the New York Post have more details on the shooting:

Several witnesses told Oregon Public Broadcasting they saw a man come out of a nearby home and confront a group of about 50 protesters before he fired into the crowd.

Five people — two men and three women — were transported to nearby hospitals in unknown conditions, police said in a statement.

The Oregon State Medical Examiners’ office will determine the identity and cause of death of the female victim.

Andy Ngo shared video a week ago showing armed Antifa members in Portland gathering for an event, though it is unclear if these armed protestors were involved:
