One person has been shot at an anti-Donald Trump demonstration in the US city of Portland, Oregon, where thousands of protesters have staged a rally against the election of the Republican presidential nominee.
The latest demonstrations against Trump’s victory in the November 8 election began on Friday afternoon and continued on Saturday morning.
"One person down. Everyone needs to leave the area immediately," police announced in a statement issued early Saturday, adding that the shooting took place as demonstrators crossed the city's Morrison Bridge.
The suspected shooter had been in a vehicle on the bridge when dozens of protesters crossed it, police said.
The shooter got out of the vehicle on the bridge and shot a demonstrator after having a confrontation with him, police said. "The suspect got out of the vehicle and fired multiple shots injuring the victim.”
The protester was rushed to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, but the suspect fled the scene, police added.
Earlier on Friday night, anti-Trump protesters took to the streets near Trump Tower in New York and in several other US cities, marking the third night of mass demonstrations after Trump clobbered his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in Tuesday's presidential election.
Trump initially dismissed the demonstrators on Twitter, calling them "professional protesters, incited by the media," but later said he admired their "passion."
Trump stunned the world by defeating heavily favored Clinton, sending the United States on a new, uncertain path.
His election campaign had been marred by his disparaging remarks against minorities in the US. His controversial comments include a call to ban all Muslims from coming to America as well as stopping Mexican migrants by building a long wall along the US-Mexico border.
He had also sought a database to track Muslims across the United States and said that the US would have "absolutely no choice" but to close down mosques.
