PORTLAND, Ore. — Fires set in trash cans, exploding fireworks and broken windows on Tuesday night marked the memorial for Sean Kealiher, a self-proclaimed activist was shot and killed two years ago.
Groups splintered off from the Multnomah County Justice Center downtown and broke windows at the Moda Tower at Southwest 2nd and Alder and Smile Dental across the street.
Two large windows of the Post Office at Southwest 1st and Main were also smashed.
People were lying in the street near the Morrison Bridge.
Kealiher, 23, was shot to death in 2019. He was hit by an SUV as he left the Cider Riot bar in Northeast Portland and gunshots were fired at the vehicle. Kealiher was pinned between the vehicle and the wall of a building. No arrests have been made in the case.
