Portland, Oregon police are using flash-bang grenades Friday night to disperse a crowd filled with hundreds of people protesting President-elect Donald Trump.

Police said three separate marches were taking place throughout the city.

Spurred by fear and outrage, demonstrators around the country were marching to protest Trump's victory.

The spirited demonstrations Friday on college campuses and along downtown streets were mostly peaceful following previous outbreaks of window-smashing and fire-setting.
