Molotov cocktails hurled at Portland police by protesters

PORTLAND (AP) — Portland police say protesters hurled Molotov cocktails at officers in Oregon’s largest city during a demonstration over a Kentucky grand jury’s decision to not indict officers in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor.

Police in a statement say the protesters Wednesday night also threw rocks that shattered windows at a law enforcement precinct station.

One officer was hit on the foot with a Molotov cocktail but a fire department medic managed to extinguish the flames.

Portland has been gripped by protests for four months since the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Police arrested 13 people.

There were no reports of injuries.
