Man Charged With Murder in Shooting at Protest in Portland

As they were working, she said, a male approached them and shouted that they were “violent terrorists,” repeatedly called them a misogynist indecency and implicated them of being accountable for violence in the city. The women were about a block from where Mr. Smith lives.
She said he threatened them, saying, “If I see you come past my home, Ill shoot you.”
Ms. Beck said that Ms. Knightly approached the guy and said: “Youre not going to frighten us. Youre not going to daunt us.”
The gunman then shot Ms. Knightly in the face, Ms. Beck stated.
Ms. Beck stated that she was shot twice, which she saw 2 of her buddies, including Ms. Knightly, on the ground, covered in blood.
The cops decreased to provide an intention for the attack, saying that it remained under examination.
A search warrant was executed at Mr. Smiths apartment over the weekend, according to his roommate, Kristine Christenson, 33, who stated she had lived with him for 7 years.
Mr. Smith, a machinist, had ended up being more and more radicalized in current years, Ms. Christenson said.
“He discussed wanting to shoot individuals all the time, just how much he disliked Antifa and Black Lives Matter and those damn commies,” she stated.
Ms. Christenson said that Mr. Smith wore a shirt that said “Kyle Rittenhouse real patriot,” referring to the Illinois guy who was acquitted of criminal charges after he fatally shot two men and injured another during demonstrations of cops conduct in Kenosha, Wis., in 2020.
