Shots Fired Into the Air After Portland Protesters Surround Car 'Driving Erratically'

Shots were fired into the air from a car in Portland, Oregon, in the early hours of July 9 as the vehicle drove away from a group of protesters who had surrounded it.

This video, recorded by Portland Independent Documentarians, shows the shots being fired out the driver’s side window of a white Kia as it drives away from protesters near the Justice Center.

The source of the video said the vehicle was “driving erratically before accelerating into protesters.” Another witness said the car “tried to swerve into the street towards people multiple times.”
