      PORTLAND, Ore. — Deputies declared a riot in downtown Portland Fright night after a crowd became hostile outside the Justice Center, according to the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office.

      The individuals demanded the crew stop recording. The group then attacked the KATU camera operator when the crew asserted their right to record in a public space. A confrontation occurred between the individuals and the TV station’s security guards.
