An alleged Trump supporter was shot dead in Portland late on Saturday as protesters from rival groups clashed in the northwest U.S. city, which has seen frequent demonstrations for months that have at times turned violent. Sounds of gunfire were heard in the area of Southeast 3rd Avenue and Southwest Alder Street, according to the spokesman’s statement.
What happened was, one of the BLM+Antifa rioters approached the man directly and killed him in cold blood:

Of course, New York Times reported that a large group of supporters of President Donald Trump had traveled in a caravan through downtown Portland, with a pro-Trump gathering drawing hundreds of trucks full of supporters into the city and cited two “unidentified witnesses” as saying a small group of people got into an argument with other people in a vehicle and someone opened fire.
Edited to show prior to the shooting.

Once the man was murdered and reported he was one of Trump supporters, BLM and Antifa started celebrating:
“I am not sad that a f—ing fascist died tonight,” says a woman at the gathering in downtown Portland. The crowd laughs and cheers.
