Pro-Trump supporters and counterprotesters clashed during a rally Oregon on Labor Day, according to The Associated Press.

Vehicles waving flags for Trump, the QAnon conspiracy theory and in support of police gathered about noon at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City. Members of the right-wing group the Proud Boys went on to Salem, where a crowd of several dozen pro-Trump supporters had gathered.

At one point Monday afternoon, the right-wing crowd rushed a smaller group of Black Lives Matters counter-demonstrators, firing paint-gun pellets at them. There were skirmishes, and the Black Lives Matter group dispersed shortly after local police arrived on the scene.

Video posted to Twitter by New York Times correspondent Mike Baker showed the pro-Trump group cross the street, with one counterprotester getting knocked to the ground, punched, and sprayed with mace.
