WATCH: Man Shot and Killed in Portland Amid Riots, Civil Unrest

A turbulent day of riots and violence in Portland turned deadly Saturday night, as a man was shot and killed after an explosion of gunfire.

Shortly after 9 PM PST, Twitter accounts reporting on the unrest became filled with reports of a man being shot in the chest. Shortly after that Andy Ngo, editor at-large for The Post Millennial, posted video of a man laying in the street, surrounded by law enforcement.

Shortly after that, Ngo was able to confirm that the victim had died.

It is unclear at the time of this writing, whether or not the man was involved with the demonstrations in the city. On Saturday, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler defiantly refused President Trump’s offer to send federal law enforcement to Portland.

Andy Ngo obtained an alleged video of the incident, though it is shot from a distance and somewhat difficult to tell what transpired.

“Portland Police officers heard sounds of gunfire from the area of Southeast 3rd Avenue and Southwest Alder Street,” the Portland Police Bureau said in a statement. They responded and located a victim with a gunshot wound to the chest. Medical responded and determined that the victim was deceased.”
