Civil Disturbance in Downtown and Lloyd Districts-Dozens of Arrests Made
by Oregon Herald staff
  Sunday May 31, 2020 - 7:07 AM
 
On May 30, 2020, demonstrators began gathering in downtown Portland around 5:30 p.m. and quickly became confrontational and aggressive with PPB officers who were providing security for the Justice Center.

At about 6:45 p.m., PPB officers who were assigned to protect the Justice Center were approached by a large group of several hundred demonstrators. The demonstrators threw projectiles at the officers and assaulted a PPB police officer.

An unlawful assembly was declared and demonstrators were admonished to leave the area or force would be used against them. Demonstrators continued to throw projectiles at police officers and Riot Control Agents were deployed. The demonstrators dispersed from the area where officers were securing the Justice Center, but continued to gather and regroup throughout the evening in both the Downtown and Lloyd Districts.

At 8:00 p.m., it was announced the Mayor's curfew order was in place and people needed to leave the city of Portland. Persons who did not leave, would be subject to arrest.

At about 9:00 p.m., there was a shooting near Southwest Hawthorne Boulevard and Water Avenue where a male was shot in the chest, which was determined not to be related to the demonstration, but was nearby. For more information about this incident see prior press release: www.portlandoregon.gov/police/news/read.cfm?id=250816

At about 11:35 p.m. aerial mortars and fireworks were thrown at the Multnomah County Courthouse. Officers were able to disperse the crowd in this area by using Riot Control Agents.

For approximately five hours, demonstrators vandalized businesses in the Downtown and Lloyd Districts. Fires were set, windows were smashed out, business were looted, and barricades were moved from construction sites to block streets and traffic. Officers made dozens of arrests related to this criminal activity.

PPB members were joined in partnership by members of the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office, Washougal Police Department, and Oregon State Police. Members of the Gresham Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff's Office assisted with handling emergency calls for service during the event.
