A large effort is underway to identify the shooter, which – if he’s the man in the below clip (unconfirmed), was misidentified as a black male earlier in the evening.

Meanwhile, Twitter is full of hot takes and condolences:

A man was shot in the chest and killed in downtown Portland Saturday night as violence broke out across the city between a participants in a pro-Trump caravan and a counter-protest organized by several opposing groups, including Antifa.

Police are investigating the incident which occurred at around 8:45 p.m. when officers responded to the sound of gunfire.

According to The Oregonian, police found “camouflage gear with infidel and thin blue line patches, which commonly indicate support for law enforcement, while the New York Times reports that he was “wearing a hat with the insignia of Patriot Prayer,” a right-wing group which has had frequent altercations with Antifa over the past several years.

Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson showed up to the scene of the shooting, and was promptly chased down the street by counter-orotesters. Gibson took refuge in a gas station.

Police eventually cleared the scene.

Earlier in the day, pro-Trump supporters and counter-protesters squared off. At one point, a man reportedly filming the license plates of conservative attendees was beaten. As he falls, you can see his arms fly straight forward in the ‘fencing response,’ suggesting possible brain damage. He was later interviewed speaking coherently, however.
