(NAT: "WHOSE STREETS? OUR STREETS!) For the third night in a row, protesters take to the streets to show their anger against the election of incoming president Donald Trump. In Portland, Oregon, one person was shot as he and other protesters crossed a bridge shortly after midnight. (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNIDENTIFIED WITNESS, SAYING: "I saw a man get out of a car. He cocked a gun and fired several times." Police say the victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The suspect is still at large. (Nat of flash-bang grenades going off) Earlier in the evening, police had tried to disperse the protest with flash-bang grenades and pepper spray. Local TV stations showed them taking at least one person into custody. In Los Angeles, hundreds of people marched through the streets but they were not allowed to block the freeway again. Police blocked off the entrance ramps and kept protesters away. Demonstrators also took to the streets in Fort Worth, Texas, New York, and Miami. The protesters fear that Trump's presidency due to start on January 20 will infringe on Americans' civil and human rights. Initially, Trump denounced the protests, claimed they were incited by the media. However, on Friday, he praised the demonstrators, tweeting they "have passion" and saying "we will all come together and be proud."
