A FOX 12 crew at the riot saw the group disperse around 9:30 p.m., after police led them away from the downtown area. The crew also witnessed several other businesses damaged during the demonstration.
The group gathered in downtown Tigard to protest an officer-involved shooting Wednesday night.
Tigard police said the shooting happened after officers responded to a report of domestic violence along Southwest Bonita Road.
Officers attempted to arrest the suspect, identified as 26-year-old Jacob Macduff, but police said he wouldn’t get out of his car. Police reported he was armed with a knife, there was a struggle, and Macduff was shot and killed by an officer.
Police originally reported the suspect's name as McDuff and provided a correction on Friday.
The Tigard Police Department said one person was arrested in Thursday night's riot. Zane Saleem Bsoul, 20, faces a riot charge.
On Friday, TPD said that the riot investigation is ongoing.
According to police, the group caused significant damage at the Tigard Police Department, City Hall, Permit Center and several blocks of the downtown Tigard business district. Police said on city property alone, more than 20 windows were broken and the amount of graffiti to city property and downtown businesses was described as "extensive."
TPD is encouraging any businesses or residents that suffered damage due to Thursday night's events to submit a report.
