PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland police arrested one man following a protest that disrupted downtown traffic.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says 19-year-old Zachary Lange was charged with riot because of an encounter with a motorist Thursday evening.

Protesters said they wanted justice for a teenager who was shot and killed by a Portland police officer on Feb. 9. Police said the 17-year-old was a suspect in an armed robbery and had a replica firearm.

Thursday’s protest disrupted traffic for several hours. There were some reports of vandalism.
