Federal agents wearing gas masks arrest two female BLM Portland protesters - leaving one with a bloody nose - and cops discover bag filled with loaded rifle magazines and Molotov cocktails during the city's 60th night of unrest

Footage exclusively recorded  shows the moment federal agents arrested demonstrators outside Portland's courthouse during the 60th night of protests in the city as police discovered a bag of loaded rifle magazines and Molotov cocktails at a park nearby. 
A crowd of less than 500 gathered in downtown Portland outside the federal building late Sunday for another night of protests. What started out as a calm night after a very hot day where the temperature reached 100 degrees slowly turned into a night of violence for both sides.
Around 1.20am, recorded video that shows two federal police officers chasing down a female protester and throwing her to the ground in the middle of street. 
At one point another protester with a baseball hit one of the officers over the back with it and another demonstrator tried to pry an officer off the woman.
The woman who was pinned to the ground with the officer's full body weight on her, screamed: 'Get off of me!' Several seconds later with her face being shoved to the ground she cried out: 'I can’t breathe!'
It appears in the video the officer had both of his fists balled up in the small of her back with the entire weight of his body.
Another protester came up to the woman and attempted to help her while she was being arrested. The young woman who was crying and bleeding from her lip said: 'I am Noelle Mandolfo from Denver, Colorado. I was just standing there and this giant f**king fed came at me for no reason with a baton. Can someone collect my belongings?'

Moments later, the woman is seen kicking the agents, which resulted in two of them piling on top of her. She was also arrested. 
Earlier in the evening, police responded to reports of gunshots near the park that is located across the street from the federal building. Two people were arrested and a third person was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound.
Portland Police tweeted that a bag of loaded rifle magazines and Molotov cocktails had been discovered near Lownsdale Square Park.
At 9pm the Wall of Moms didn’t have enough moms at the protest, approximately 50 showed up, to construct their wall so organizers asked for the public to be part of the wall.
Around 11pm protesters turned to the federal building to protest, where they started setting off fireworks toward the courthouse. Just after midnight federal police emerged from the building and fired off tear gas and rubber bullets at the protesters and quickly retreated.
At 1am federal police came out again, firing tear gas and rubber bullets at the protesters. Someone from the crowd threw a Molotov cocktail over the fence and it landed near several federal officers.
Ten minutes later at 1.10am, about 100 federal police officers emerged onto the street and stood in front of the federal building.

Meanwhile in Austin, Texas, thousands of people attended a vigil honoring 28-year-old Garret Foster, who was shot and killed by a person who drove through a crowd of marchers the night before.  
In Alexandria, Virginia, protesters flocked to the home of Chad Wolf, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, to decry the deployment of federal officers in cities including Portland, Seattle and Oakland.
On Sunday, President Donald Trump continued his campaign to discredit anti-racism and Black Lives Matter demonstrations by once again shifting blame for continued clashes on 'anarchists'.
'The Lamestream Media, including Fox News, which has really checked out, is refusing to show what is REALLY going on in Portland, Seattle, and other places,' the president wrote.
'They want the American public to believe that these are just some wonderful protesters, not radical left ANARCHISTS!'
Trump's tendency to use 'anarchists' as blanket term for protesters has increased as his heavy-handed, militarized approach to quelling protests has amounted to increased tensions between civilians and authorities.
'In Portland we had to go in as they're anarchists,' Trump said about Portland protesters this week an interview with Sean Hannity Thursday night.
The president has so far deployed federal agents to Portland, Seattle and Chicago.
In a Monday morning tweet, Trump said: 'Homeland Security or Federal Forces are little involved in Seattle other than we have a large standby team in case of emergency. The media is calling that one wrong also. In Portland, we are protecting Federal property, including the Courthouse, which wouldn't last a day!'

Portland, Oregon 
Sunday night's apparent shooting in Portland capped off a weekend of violent protests in the city where federal agents were deployed to quell unrest but ultimately only exacerbated the chaos.  
Witnesses reported hearing at least two shots ring out before people were seen fleeing out of Lownsdale Square.  
KPTV's Kandra Kent spoke to one witness who tried to break up the fight that led up to the shooting. 
That witness claimed that there were three to four guns involved, and the first shot erupted during a struggle for control of a gun.  
Officers were seen escorting one man out of the square before protesters began trying to pressure police to leave the area. 
Police confirmed that two people had been taken into custody in connection with the incident. 
They initially said that no one appeared to be injured but later revealed that one person had been hospitalized with a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

None of the people involved in the incident have been identified and its unclear if the incident was connected to the demonstrations. 
Elsewhere in Portland a group of middle-age largely suburban women dubbed the Wall of Moms formed a small march on Sunday - but their numbers appeared to have dwindled in recent days. 
Over the past week hundreds of 'Moms' dressed in signature yellow shirts gathered to form a wall between federal police and the BLM protestors, but on Sunday night approximately 50 showed up.
One of the organizers told the crowd they don't have enough Moms to form a wall tonight but asked other members of the group if they could help them out to form their nightly wall.

During Saturday night's protest, demonstrators breached a fence surrounding the city's federal courthouse building where the agents have been stationed.
Police declared the situation to be a riot and at around 1.20am Sunday began ordering people to leave the area surrounding the courthouse or risk arrest, saying on Twitter that the violence had created 'a grave risk' to the public.
About 20 minutes later, federal officers and local police could be seen attempting to clear the area and deploying tear gas, however protesters remained – forming lines across intersections and holding makeshift shields as police patrolled and closed blocks abutting the area.
Multiple arrests were made, but it was not immediately clear how many.

Protesters held a vigil on Sunday evening at the site where Garrett Foster was killed in downtown Austin on Saturday night.

The crowd erupted in chants of 'Say his name ... Garrett Foster' and held a moment of silence honoring the slain 28-year-old. 
Following the vigil, the sea of protesters made their way to the Texas State Capitol to finish the march that had been disrupted the night before.  
It came hours after Austin Police Chief Brian Manley confirmed that Foster was carrying a rifle when he approached the vehicle that the person suspected of shooting him was in. 
Manley said the suspect shot out of their car at Foster and then called 911 to report that they had shot someone who pointed a gun at their vehicle. 
The suspect, who has not been named publicly, was arrested following the shooting and later released on Sunday as the incident remains under investigation.  
Sheila Foster, Garrett's mother, said she was told her son was pushing his fiancee, who uses a wheelchair, through an intersection when the suspect was driving 'erratically' through the crowd.
She said she was told the driver shot her son three times.

Alexandria, Virginia
Dozens of protesters flocked to the home of acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf on Sunday afternoon to condemn the deployment of federal officers who have forcefully detained and tear gassed demonstrators in Portland.  
The protest was organized by ShutDownDC, a group which considers Wolf to be responsible for the actions of the federal agents and is demanding that they be removed from every city in the US.  
Jonathan Krall, of Grassroots Alexandria, spoke to WTOP at the protest and decried the human rights abuses occurring in Portland.  
'The behavior of the DHS is extremely worrying,' Krall said. 'There should be due process. There shouldn't be people picked up without paperwork. There shouldn't be people picked up without documentation of what's going on.'

Seattle, Washington 
In Seattle, another city with a large presence of federal agents, thousands of people took to the streets of the Capitol Hill neighborhood on Sunday afternoon for largely peaceful protest.  
Tensions between protesters and police officers reached a boiling point hours earlier as the latter group retreated into a precinct station after midnight following large demonstrations in the area surrounding the Capitol.  
Some demonstrators lingered after officers filed into the department's East Precinct at around 1am, but most cleared out a short time later, according to video posted online.
Rocks, bottles, fireworks and mortars were fired at police during the weekend unrest, and police said they arrested at least 45 people for assaults on officers, obstruction and failure to disperse.
Twenty-one officers were hurt, with most of their injuries considered minor, police said.
