In Vancouver, Wash. — 12 minutes from Portland, Ore. — demonstrations intensified following the fatal shooting of a 21-year-old Black man, Kevin Peterson Jr., who was fatally shot Thursday by sheriff's deputies.

The state of play: Hundreds of people gathered Friday night, with signs reading "Honk for Black lives," The Oregonian reports. Windows were broken, flags torched and federal agents in riot gear surrounded a federal building — cautioning demonstrators that trespassing could result in arrest.

  • The Oregonian reports that the circumstances of the killing remain unclear.

Clark County Sheriff Chuck Atkins said in a statement that joint city-county narcotics task force ran after a man into the parking lot of a bank, where he reportedly fired a gun in their direction, according to ABC News. "Deputies approached him because they believed he may have been selling drugs in the parking lot of a suburban Vancouver hotel," per the Oregonian.

  • A firearm was recovered at the scene, according to Atkins.
  • Peterson had "produced" a gun before officers fired, according to a report from The Southwest Washington Independent Investigative Response Team, which is looking into further details of the shooting.

The police officer who shot and killed Andre Hill, an unarmed Black man, in Columbus, Ohio, last week has been fired, the city's police chief said Monday.

Driving the news: Adam Coy, a 19-year veteran with the police force, did not attempt to deescalate the situation before shooting Hill, according to Public Safety Director Ned Pettus Jr., who said Monday that the "known facts do not establish that this use of deadly force was objectively reasonable," per ABC News.
