“There was misinformation spread on social media regarding the officer involved in the shooting in the Lloyd district. We can confirm that the subject involved was an adult white male. No one else was injured,” he said. Portland Police tweeted.
As Andy Ngo pointed out, the tweet was posted to avoid confrontation with the Antifa mob, who had already gathered at the location after circling that the man shot by the police was black.
Portland Police are due to issue a tweet explaining that the man shot today in NE Portland was white after the antifa told him it was a man of color. Antifa and most left -wing protesters gathered in the area to confront the police in line with racial rumors. https://t.co/B4dJ71S5yF
