Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is expected to hold a press conference following the death of one person during a clash between protesters and Trump supporters in the city late Saturday.
He will be joined by Portland Police Bureau Chief Chuck Lovell.
One person was shot and killed as a large caravan of U.S. President Donald Trump supporters and Black Lives Matter protesters clashed in the streets of the city that has become a flashpoint in the national unrest since George Floyd was killed.
“All options continue to be on the table” to resolve violent protests in Portland, Oregon, including sending in federal law enforcement assistance, said the acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf.
