Protests erupted on Wednesday night where tens of thousands of people vented their frustrations over the democratic election results and tell America that Donald Trump is not their President. In at least 25 US cities including New York, Oakland, Philadelphia, Boston, Nashville, Chicago, Cleveland, San Francisco and Seattle there were mostly peaceful protests where participants chanted anti-Trump slogans, started fires, and burned American flags. There were at least 124 arrests and reports of damage, vandalism and injuries in several locations.
A gunman opened fire in downtown Seattle following an argument and wounded five people, one man critically.
“It appears that some type of argument took place. This individual began to walk away from the crowd, then turned and fired into the crowd,” said Robert Merner, assistant chief of the Seattle Police Department.
