Portland: Patriot caravan and shooting.

I didn't go to last night's motor rally, but reports indicate the turnout by our side was amazing. According to The Oregonian, "More than 1,000 people gathered Saturday at the area’s largest rally for President Donald Trump amid the 2020 election season. Demonstrators converged outside of Clackamas Town Center ahead of a planned caravan to Portland."

The event went without serious incident until late last night, when just before 9pm, according to AP, "One person was shot and killed late Saturday in Portland, Oregon, as a large caravan of President Donald Trump supporters and Black Lives Matter protesters clashed in the streets, police said."

"Black Rebel" Andrew Duncomb, himself a survivor of political violence, shares a video of the shooting: "This is so hard to watch."

Andy Ngo posts: "Portland Police have not officially named a shooting suspect who killed the Trump caravan participant but the alleged shooter identified based on videos says he is antifa in his writings & has been at many of the Portland riots. I will not name him until authorities do." And I'm going to follow Andy's lead.

UPDATE: "The victim of last night's deadly shooting in downtown Portland is Aaron Danielson, who went by Jay."
