Portland police and Crime Stoppers of Oregon are offering a reward for information about a suspect in an arson at the police bureau’s North Precinct on June 26.
A group of people set the police station on fire while people were inside, and damaged and burned nearby businesses, all of which are owned by people of color, during an hourslong clash with police officers.
Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell called the group’s actions reprehensible and evil. Faith leaders and members of Portland's Black community denounced the violence as an attempt to distract people from the momentum of the Black Lives Matter movement.
