Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Riot declared in Portland as protests erupt in US cities over police violence” – below is their description.
Protests erupted in several US cities, in the wake of the killings of Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old shot by police after being pulled over, and unarmed 13-year-old Adam Toledo.
In the Minneapolis, Minnesota suburb of Brooklyn Center, protesters staged the sixth straight night of demonstrations outside the police headquarters. Smaller demonstrations also occurred in downtown Minneapolis.
In Chicago, where Adam was killed, thousands marched in Logan Square after the video of the 13-year-old being shot with his arms raised was released this week.
In Portland, Oregon, police declared a riot on Friday night after demonstrations that followed police fatally shooting a local man while responding to reports of a person with a gun.
