The much-ballyhooed dueling protests in Portland are finally living up the billing, as sounds of gunfire are now ringing out in downtown.
That’s right, apparently, someone is shooting at someone, which is likely to be connected to the Antifa vs. Proud Boys brawl.
Mason Lake Media caught it on video:
Here’s another angle, as you can see the guy behind the recycling can apparently shoots first, then someone else returns fire. It’s unclear which “side” any of these particular individuals are on.
Sean Carmitchel also got video leading up to the shooting, where you can see the guy with the hat backing away holding his gun out to the side as others are walking him back, including what appears to the shooter with his gun drawn and leveled at the guy:
Couple of other pictures:
UPDATE: The man arrested has been identified as Dennis Anderson, and rumblings on twitter from antifa sources say he’s associated with the Proud Boys. Anderson is the guy with the hat taking cover behind the recycling bin. Anderson is charged with Unlawful Possession Of A Firearm (Class A Misdemeanor) and Unlawful Use Of A Weapon (Class C Felony), and he’s being held on $7,500 bond. The other shooter is apparently still at large, as no other jail bookings match the time, location, or what would be related charges.
However, Drew Hernandez may have caught the other shooter on camera, as well-known antifa militant Luis Marquez is seen berating one of his comrades, shouting “”I’m gonna beat the f*** out of you right now. If you can’t determine when to fire your f***ing gun, you shouldn’t have it child. I will beat the f*** out of you!”
The press release from the Portland Police Bureau only references a single “suspect” shooting, and makes no mention of the other party firing more shots.
Mason Lake snapped a pic of the aftermath:
So did Sergio Olmos:
The antifa sympathizers mock the police when they arrive on scene, one shouting “I’LL FUCK YOU UP, LITTLE BITCH! FUCK YOUR KIDS, TOO!”:
In another angle, you can hear someone shout “ALEX!” during the shootout:
