PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -- Police declared a riot Sunday after protesters returned to the Portland Police Association for the second night in a row.

At 8 p.m., a crowd gathered at Kenton Park, located at 2351 North Kilpatrick Street. By 9:30 p.m., the group of about 200 people began marching to the PPA office in the 1800 block of North Lombard Street.

When the crowd reached the office, police gave verbal warning to the crowd to not engage in criminal activities.

Just after 10 p.m., police declared unlawful assembly and told the crowd to disperse west or be subject to an arrest or citation.

During the dispersal, police said commercial grade fireworks were thrown at officers.

One officers was burned on her neck and her face mask partially melted. A sergeant standing about 10 feet away was injured in the leg by a piece of firework. The injured officers were treated at the scene by paramedics.

Police said a riot was declared due to the direct attacks on officers.
