###ORIGINAL MESSAGES###

On Friday, May 29, 2020, PPB was aware of two planned events in memory of George Floyd.

At 11:00 a.m., at Terry Schrunk Plaza, there was a peaceful vigil regarding the death of George Floyd. After the vigil at 3:29 p.m., Central Precinct Officers responded to Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Main Street regarding a subject in a car "surrounded by protesters."

Officers observed about thirty protesters standing around the sides and front of a vehicle. The officers determined the safest course of action was to close the street for the safety of the motorist and the protesters. Officers created a safe route for the driver to back his vehicle out of the crowd, but the driver refused. Officers gave the driver several admonishments to back his vehicle out of the crowd, but the subject again refused. The driver was arrested and issued a criminal citation.

At 6:00 p.m. in Peninsula Park, another peaceful vigil took place with approximately a thousand community members in attendance. Once the vigil was over, some participants left the area and several hundred marched to North Precinct and then went South on Martin Luther King Boulevard towards downtown Portland.

During the southbound march on Martin Luther King Boulevard, some protesters in the march vandalized business with graffiti for about twenty blocks. A bank sustained broken windows.

At 9:50 p.m., near the intersection of Northeast 7th Avenue and Northeast Morris Street a large group of protesters gathered. A vehicle was within the group of protesters. One of the protesters shot at the occupants of the vehicle, injuring the passenger. The vehicle left the area. An adult male arrived at a nearby hospital with a non-life threatening injury from the shooting. He was treated and released.

At about 11:00 p.m. the march continued until it reached the Justice Center downtown. A large group of several hundred protesters gathered on Northwest 3rd Avenue between Northwest Main Street and Madison Street. Protesters spray painted on the building, broke the windows to make unlawful entry into the building, and started a fire inside the first floor of the Justice Center. PPB Officers responded to the area to disperse the crowd and Portland Fire & Rescue units arrived to extinguish the fire.

An unlawful assembly was declared and protesters were admonished to leave the area or force would be used against them. Protesters continued to vandalize inside and outside the Justice Center. Riot Control Agents were deployed and the protesters dispersed from the Justice Center, but remained downtown.

After leaving the Justice Center, some protesters walked north to Pioneer Place Mall. Protesters broke the store front windows and unlawfully entered the mall. Once inside the mall protesters started looting the stores and vandalizing the property. Officers responded to the corner of Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Yamhill Street to interdict the violent crimes occurring. As officers were arriving protesters started to smash out the windows of the police vehicles with electric scooters. Officers were able to safely drive away without harm beyond the damage to the vehicle.

Along with looting, protesters started multiple fires in the city including: the contents of a large dumpster, trash cans, vehicles, and a large pile of pallets in the intersection of Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Alder Street. Portland Police Bureau officers were needed to provide Portland Fire and Rescue a safe route in to extinguish the fires. Some of the targeted businesses included banks, marijuana dispensaries, liquor stores, electronic stores, and department stores.

Violent criminal behavior, including arson, riot, and looting occurred over about a five hour period of time. A State of Emergency was declared by Mayor Ted Wheeler and a curfew was imposed. During the riot, a Police Officer was struck by a thrown incendiary device and was injured. A PPB Criminalist was struck in the head with a rock and sustained injury as well.

As of 5 a.m., PPB Officers arrested a total of 13 people in connection with described events:

"We know what sparked the original demonstration and we provided space for those who needed to express grief," said Acting Chief Chris Davis. "The mass destruction we saw tonight in our City is unacceptable. Anger at the police is one thing; destroying our City is another. We know our community as a whole does not condone mass destruction. In the coming days, we will be increasing our police presence, leaning on our partners, and working with the community to restore safety."
