PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police in Portland, Oregon, issued a statement Saturday morning, saying police declared a Friday night protest an unlawful assembly after some officers reported that rocks, a full beverage can and water bottles had been thrown at them.

Officers arrested 27 people.

The city this weekend reaches 100 straight nights of protests marked by vandalism and violence.

Authorities late Friday also released additional court documents detailing the moments before the slaying of a right-wing protester last weekend.

The documents showed antifa supporter Michael Forest Reinoehl ducked into a garage and reached toward his waist before following the victim, Patriot Prayer supporter Aaron “Jay” Danielson. Reinoehl was killed by federal agents late Thursday in Washington state.
