News is still spotty, but we’re receiving multiple reports of a Black person shot by police in the Vancouver area earlier tonight. The exact circumstances of the shooting are still unclear, but early reports suggest the person was unarmed.

Family of the victim have stated that his name is Kevin Peterson, Jr.

With the heightened racial justice tensions in the Portland area already in the months following George Floyd’s death at hands of police officers, it is expected that there will be a significant protest presence on the streets in Portland. Early reports already suggest that Portland Police is mobilizing it’s riot police in preparation.

This is, of course, a breaking story, and more will be made available as the information comes through.
