Police in Portland, Oregon declared a civil disturbance on Saturday after counter-protesters from Antifa showed up at a downtown Patriot Prayer rally and threw projectiles at the police, resulting in the deployment of flash grenades. 

Another angle:

The disturbance comes around a month after "Rose City" Antifa squared off with conservatives in a violent altercation that took place in the middle of Second Avenue.

Meanwhile, Portland PD announced that they were shutting down the protest near SW Naito Parkway and SW Columbia streets: 

Earlier in the day a man "got in a struggle with some black clad dudes over a flag and one of them clubbed him," according to journalist Mike Bivins, after which the man bled onto the street.
