Portland protesters dispersed near midnight

Just before midnight, police in Portland, Oregon, began dispersing protesters assembling near the county’s Justice Center after declaring β€œa civil disturbance and unlawful assembly.” Portland police Lt. Tina Jones said on Twitter that a firework had been lobbed over the fence at the Justice Center, injuring a Multnomah County deputy. She says police were making arrests. In a video posted on Twitter by a Portland Tribune reporter, a voice from a loudspeaker could be heard ordering demonstrators to leave the area β€œor you will be subject to use of force and arrest.” In other videos, popping noises could be heard as whiffs of smoke wafted and a police officer is seen momentarily clashing with a protester.
