(Portland, OR)  --  Local leaders are responding after a protester was seriously injured by a federal police officer during demonstrations downtown.  Mayor Ted Wheeler released a statement on Twitter last night calling on the federal government to adhere to the same directives he issued to the Portland Police Bureau banning the use of crowd control munitions on peaceful protesters.  Wheeler added that the actions of federal officers during Saturday night's protest escalated rather than de-escalated already heightened tensions in the city.  Governor Kate Brown also condemned the actions of federal police and blamed President Trump for "continuing to push for force and violence in response to protests."  Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley also condemned Trump for dispatching federal officers to Portland.  Protesters Donovan LaBella was hospitalized in critical condition Saturday night after a federal police projectile struck him in the head outside the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse.
