BREAKING: Bomb Threat Closes Portland City Hall
Portland City hall was evacuated on Tuesday afternoon due to bomb threats.
This comes days after Antifa terrorists assaulted conservative jornalist Andy Ngo in the streets of Portland.

The Portland Police Bureau released this official statement:
On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, at 12:15 p.m., the Portland Police Bureau’s Central Precinct responded to a bomb threat call at City Hall, located at 1221 Southwest 4th Avenue. City Hall has been closed and is being evacuated due to an abundance of caution. The Portland Police Bureau is investigating the matter to determine the credibility of the threat. Information will be released as it becomes available. Please avoid the area while investigators look into the circumstances.
Portland City Hall was evacuated Tuesday due to a reported bomb threat.
Officers responded to City Hall around 12:15 p.m. to investigate and have not yet found any evidence of an explosive device, according to the Portland Police Bureau. The building was evacuated as a precaution.
The threat was likely made via a phone call or email sent to city officials, said Officer Sean Sothern.
Kristin Dennis, the mayor’s chief of staff, said the city has been receiving thousands of angry emails and phone calls a day since the mayor was criticized for his handling of a protest last weekend.
Maybe the vichy mayor is just trying to get out of a day of facing the public, like Monday, when he decided to not show up to the city council meeting.
His staff said Mayor Wheeler was out of the city.

UPDATE from Portland “police”:
City Hall security personnel have swept City Hall and nothing suspicious has been located. At this time, it has been determined there is not a credible threat. City Hall is back open for regular operations.
Looks like Wheeler is running out of ways to hide.
