Protesters Gather in Portland Suburb of Tigard After Police Murder of Mentally Ill Man

Hundreds of protesters gathered at the Portland suburb of Tigard following the police murder of a mentally ill man with little apparent threat to the life of the officers. Following the realization that there was no police presence at the Tigard Police Department, demonstrators began smashing up windows and attempted to breach the facility until several police cruisers rolled in.

The man shot by police in Tigard was mentally ill, and officers arrived in response to a domestic disturbance call (which could mean a mental health crisis). He had a knife in his car, but no reports, police or otherwise, indicate he used it to defend himself.
