On Saturday, a man was fatally shot amid conflicts between protesters in downtown Portland. In response, Oregon Gov. Brown has announced a plan for more involvement from federal authorities, along with assistance from state and county agencies. OPB reporter Jonathan Levinson tells us about the events on Saturday. Bobbin Singh, executive director of Oregon Justice Resource Center, also joins us. OJRC is among the groups calling for Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Police Chief Chuck Lovell to resign.
