One Killed And Five Wounded After Shooting In Portland During A Protest

One person was killed and five were wounded in a shooting at a park in Portland, authorities said.

The Portland police bureau said officers responded to a report of shots fired at Normandale Park on Saturday at about 8pm.

Officers found one woman dead and two men and three other women were taken to hospital, police said.

Their conditions were not immediately known. Police did not immediately name anyone involved in the shooting.

Social media flyers showed there was a planned march for Amir Locke, a Black man who was fatally shot by police in Minneapolis, the same time the shooting took place, KOIN-TV reported.

The Oregon medical examiner was expected to identify the woman killed and determine the cause of death. An investigation was continuing.
