Reports have emerged that shots were fired at counter-protesters during a ‘People’s Convoy’ protest on Friday in Oregon, marking the most violent act of the convoy protests which began in January aiming to end mask mandates, vaccine requirements, and lockdowns. The truckers were riding along the I-205 freeway near Oregon City, Oregon and reportedly fired shots in response to paint-filled balloons being thrown at their trucks from a bridge by counter-protesters. No injuries have been reported.
– Shots fired along the 205 North, near Oregon City. Big D, the driver of the yellow fire truck appears to fire the first shot near Oreo Express. Close enough to rattle the camera. Another shot follows, potentially by another convoy participant. #convoywatch pic.twitter.com/TJqJr2Fczm
