Protesters demonstrating against the election of Donald Trump gathered in several US cities for a a third straight night, following previous outbreaks of window-smashing and fire-setting.

Protests swept across the cities of Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco and Portland.  One protester was shot, voicing anger at Trump’s controversial campaign rhetoric about immigrants, Muslims and women.

The police said that a man got out of a vehicle on the bridge where he confronted and then shot a protester, who was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The suspect is still at large, police added.

There were no reports of violence or arrests at the rallies, unlike on Thursday night when demonstrators in Portland threw objects, damaging new cars at a dealership.

Other small protests were held in Detroit; Minneapolis; Kansas City, Missouri; Olympia, Washington DC; and Iowa City.

In Miami, several thousand activists marched through the downtown, with a few hundred making their way onto a highway, halting traffic in both directions.

In New York, demonstrators again gathered in Washington Square Park and by Trump Tower, where the Republican president-elect lives, on Fifth Avenue.

Police there arrested at least 26 people.
