PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Protesters blocked downtown Portland streets over the shooting death of Quanice Hayes, the 17-year-old who was the main suspect in an armed robbery.

The protests erupted just before the Portland City Council was set to hold their regularly scheduled meeting at the Portland Building. The building was placed on lockdown and Mayor Ted Wheeler delayed the City Council meeting for an hour. But once it began, 2 people immediately caused disruptions. Protester Joe Walsh left on his own but protester Mimi German was asked to leave — and did.
