PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A 14-year-old boy who shot a man participating in a November President Donald Trump protest in Portland has been ordered to youth prison, possibly for over a decade.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://goo.gl/1aW8pI ) the boy could be released at any time officials at the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility in Woodburn determine he’s rehabilitated.

He’ll be released no later than his 25th birthday.

The teen shot 21-year-old Louis Carlos Paredes-Luis in the leg and grazed another person in the head about 1:20 a.m. on Nov. 12 on the Morrison Bridge.

It’s unclear why the boy opened fire on protesters who were upset about the Nov. 8 presidential election.

The teen previously pleaded no contest to two counts of assault with a firearm and guilty to one count of unlawful use of a weapon.
