Suspect in Portland death Killed by investigators

LACEY, Wash. (AP) — A man suspected of fatally shooting a supporter of a right-wing group in Portland, Oregon, last week was killed Thursday as investigators moved in to arrest him, a senior Justice Department official told The Associated Press.

The man, Michael Reinoehl, 48, was killed as a federal task force attempted to apprehend him in Lacey, Washington, the official said. Reinoehl was the prime suspect in the killing of 39-year-old Aaron “Jay” Danielson, who was shot in the chest Saturday night, the official said.

The official said Reinoehl had pulled a gun during the encounter and was shot by law enforcement.

The official could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Reinoehl had described himself in a social media post as “100% ANTIFA,” suggested the tactics of counter-protesters amounted to “warfare,” and had been shot at one protest and cited for having a gun at another.

He had been been a regular presence at anti-racism demonstrations in Portland.

Police on July 5 cited Reinoehl on allegations of possessing a loaded gun in a public place, resisting arrest, and interfering with police. On July 26, Reinoehl was shot near his elbow after he got involved in a scuffle between an armed white man and a group of young people of color. The man who was carrying the gun, Aaron Scott Collins, told The Oregonian/OregonLive that he and a friend had just left a bar when they saw the group harassing an older Black man. His friend began filming them with a phone, and the group confronted them, calling them Nazis, he said.

Reinoehl later that day spoke to an AP videographer. His arm was wrapped in a bloody bandage; he said he was on his way to meet protest medics so they could change it

He said he didn’t know what had started the altercation between Collins and the group, but that several people had decided to intervene when they saw Collins fighting with minors.

“As soon as the adults jumped in, he pulled out a gun,” Reinoehl said. “I jumped in there and pulled the gun away from people’s heads, avoided being shot in the stomach and I got shot in the arm.”

Reinoehl also is wanted on a warrant out of Baker County in Eastern Oregon, where court records show he skipped a hearing related to a June case in which he has been charged with driving under the influence of controlled substances, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, and unlawful possession of a firearm. 

Police said he drove on an interstate at up to 111 mph, with his 11-year-old daughter in the car, while racing his 17-year-old son, who was in a different vehicle.

Reinoehl had described himself in a social media post as “100% ANTIFA,”

Now he's 100% dead.

Moral of the story: Don't pull a gun during an encounter with law enforcement.

Tax dollars saved. 

What I want to know is how he is 100% behind ANTIFA? According to the Alt-left apologist they don't exist. 

But glad to see this veteran 'patriot' that assaulted and shot a unarmed man get his just desserts.

It took a lot of outside pressure to get the police to go out and arrest him. He was wanted for murder and out giving interviews to the far left "Vice!"

Police shoot white guy. America yawns.

Or maybe they'll dream up some conspiracy that he was silenced because of his politics.

Some silly few will wait for the facts to be revealed before making up their minds.

If he was stupid enough to draw an gun on police, they are more than justified in defending themselves.  Looks like he bought an paid for his lumps... cash transaction paid in full.

My understanding is this was a multi agency federal arrest.

 Headed by none other than the US Marshalls , those guys jurisdiction is extensive if one looks , and IMHO , the one LEO organization , one does not want to screw with.

Like tommy lee jones said in the fugitive ,you can scream your innocent , say your not going to comply, but they dont care , your going with them , in custody one way or another.

Just like the right has made a hero out of the scumbag Rittenhouse by chance?  

Tell me again how many Blake killed with his unlawful presence and weapon, and how many police bullets Rittenhouse took in the back without being armed.....

Nobody has made a hero out of Rittenhouse...he has been arrested (without resisting) and charged with numerous counts.  We should let the court decide.

Blake is a dirtbag.  The investigation will tell if the police used excessive force or not. In the meantime the left is makng him to be a martyr and a hero before knowing all the facts.  Like usual.

Claiming he acted in self defense.

I haven't seen or heard anyone claiming that, just stating that the facts may support a self-defense.  I haven't seen anyone on the right having many press conferences to defend Rittenhouse as the lefties have for the scumbag Blake.  

Perhaps you can provide some facts of your claim.

Nope, the majority of trumpturd supporters have been saying it's self defense.  

No surprise there.

Suggest isn't claiming..many people have suggested it and saying let's wait and see what the investigation determines unlike the looney left making a hero out of a dirtbag and condemning the police before any facts are released.  

Have you seen any Trump supporters rioting, looting, and destroying a city because of Rittenhouse's arrest?  Can we say the same for Biden's supporters about Blake?
