Protests and riots occurred across the U.S. Friday night after a jury found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all charges after he shot three people, killing two, during a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last summer.
In Portland, a riot was declared just after 9 p.m. after a group of protesters became violent by smashing windows and began looting stores.
According to KGW8, roughly 100 people gathered outside the Justice Center downtown and began breaking windows and damaging city property.
Riot police were called in to disperse the crowd but in one video, a group of riot police was cornered and forced into a garage after seeing they were outnumbered by the protesters.
The Portland Police Cheif said he had plans in case the verdict went for Rittenhouse and expected to see some sort of unrest.
Other protests occurred in Chicago and New York City.
