Portland, Oregon (KOIN) — According to KOIN 6 news media partner Portland Tribune, Oregon City police declared a riot on Friday afternoon after a clash between left and right-wing protesters in the park.

Portland Tribune reporter Zane Sparring was at the scene of Clackamette Park on Friday afternoon when demonstrators in a duel protest clashed with what appeared to be a chemical stimulant.

The video showed a plume of what appeared to be a chemical stimulant in the air when a nauseating individual sound was heard outside the camera.

According to Sparling, right-wing protesters included members of the Proud Boys, and left-wing protesters included members of Antifa. Both groups were ordered by the authorities to leave the park.

Before the riots were declared, Oregon City police officers were seen focusing on issuing cars parked in places reserved for boat trailers.
