1 person fatally shot in Portland as pro-Trump supporters clash with counterprotesters

first_imgNathan Howard/Getty ImagesBY: MORGAN WINSOR, ABC NEWS    (PORTLAND) — One person was shot and killed in downtown Portland on Saturday night, as protests in Oregon’s largest city entered their fourth month.Portland police officers located the individual with a gunshot wound to the chest, after hearing gunfire in the area of Southeast 3rd Avenue and Southwest Alder Street at 8:46 p.m. local time. Medics responded and pronounced the victim dead at the scene, according to a press release from the Portland Police Department.A homicide investigation is underway. No suspect information is being released at this time, police said.Anyone who was a witness, has video or has information about the incident is urged to contact the Portland Police Department.“It is still early in this investigation, and I ask everyone to give the detectives time to do their important work before drawing conclusions about what took place,” Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said in a statement early Sunday. “If anyone can provide information about this case, I ask them to please reach out to our detectives. This violence is completely unacceptable and we are working diligently to find and apprehend the individual or individuals responsible.”The deadly shooting occurred as dueling demonstrations took place throughout downtown Portland. A car rally in support of President Donald Trump had gathered earlier that evening and held a massive procession that was ultimately met by counterprotesters supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. Portland ABC affiliate reported seeing clashes between the two groups on the streets.Investigators have not said whether the shooting was connected to the demonstrations or clashes.According to a separate press release from the Portland Police Department, there were “hundreds of vehicles” that participated in Saturday’s rally and a “significant number” drove into downtown as part of the procession. People in the cars “periodically exchanged words” with pedestrians and, at times, fights broke out. There were also some minor collisions, police said.“Portland Police responded to scenes of fights, disturbances and collisions throughout downtown and made some arrests,” police said in a statement early Sunday.The caravan of vehicles left the downtown area by about 8:30 p.m. local time, according to police. Over the next two hours, groups of people moved through downtown streets and there was “sporadic fighting and vandalism,” police said. The crowds slowly began to dissipate around midnight.Police arrested 10 people overnight, mostly for disorderly conduct.Black Lives Matter protests erupted in Portland and other cities across the United States following the May 25 death of George Floyd, an unarmed 46-year-old Black man who died in Minneapolis after a white police officer was filmed kneeling on his neck as three other officers watched. The protesters are calling for an end to police brutality and racial injustice.In a speech at the Republican National Convention on Thursday, Trump invoked Portland as a “Democrat-run” city plagued by “rioting, looting, arson, and violence.”Trump took to Twitter early Sunday to comment on the latest violence in Portland, calling the city’s mayor “incompetent” and “a fool.” While retweeting a video that purportedly shows Trump supporters in their cars firing paintballs and pepper spray at counterprotesters on the street, the president remarked that the “big backlash going on in Portland cannot be unexpected.”“The people of Portland won’t put up with no safety any longer,” he tweeted. “Bring in the National Guard!”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Brisbane first entered the global top 45 at 19th spot in the first quarter of 2018, moving to 17th spot by the fourth quarter last year, one spot behind Sydney.In the latest report, the river city has leapfrogged Sydney, with Sydney now in 18th spot and luxury market that has grown by 2.4 per cent, while Melbourne, which is in 22nd position, recorded just 1.8 per cent growth — on par with Perth.center_img Place Bulimba managing director Sarah Hackett“I am cautious but optimistic because everything I have currently has offers,” she said.“Recently, 24 Aaron Avenue at Hawthorne sold at tender for $9 million (three vacant blocks at $3 million each), 30 Wendell Street sold for $6 million 10 days before the tender even closed, 146 Virginia Avenue, also at Hawthorne, is under contract and will likely go for around that $6 million mark and even Addison Avenue, that’s still two weeks out from auction and we already have two written offers.” More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoQueenslander!!!! AAP/David ClarkThe report also predicted that the number of millionaires being created in Brisbane would triple — from one to three daily — over the next five years, creating an even bigger pool of high-net worth individuals clambering for high-end, luxury housing stock.Ms Ciesielski said the rise in the number of local millionaires could be attributed to expats returning home and interstate migrators making the move to the Sunshine State seeking a better lifestyle.But she said the projection was for Brisbane only, and when places like the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast and the state’s resource-rich regions were taken in to account, that number was likely “much higher”. Place Bulimba agent Sarah Hackett said she was not surprised by the report. Other cities to rank higher than Brisbane included Tokyo, Paris, Delhi Beijing and Singapore, which recorded growth of 3.6 per cent — 0.4 per cent more than Brisbane.But Brisbane outranked the likes of Miami — the top performer in the US — and Los Angeles and New York.In terms of price growth, Brisbane also exceeded a number of cities within the European Union including Monaco, Vienna, Milan and Stockholm, and London, which has been under the Brexit cloud.
