Biden lost a soldier!
“They’re out hunting me,” Michael Reinoehl reportedly told an interviewer earlier
An Antifa sympathizer who was said to be a suspect in the fatal shooting of a Patriot Prayer supporter in Portland, Ore., last month was reportedly killed Thursday night as authorities moved in to arrest him.
Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, died in Lacey, Wash., outside Seattle, during an operation by a federal fugitive task force, The New York Times reported.
Reinoehl's death was also confirmed by a senior Justice Department official, according to The Associated Press. The suspect was shot by law enforcement after drawing a gun on officers, the AP report said.
The task force was composed of personnel from the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service.
In a statement early Friday, the Marshals Service said the task force was acting on a murder warrant issued for Reinoehl by Portland police.
"Initial reports indicate the suspect produced a firearm, threatening the lives of law enforcement officers," the statement said. "Task force members responded to the threat and struck the suspect who was pronounced dead at the scene." Portland police had issued the warrant for Reinoehl earlier in the day, amid their investigation into the Aug. 29 fatal shooting of Aaron “Jay” Danielson, 39, on a night in which supporters of President Trump clashed with backers of the Black Lives Matter movement in Oregon’s largest city.
Earlier Thursday, Reinoehl was quoted in an interview on the Vice website, claiming he was a marked man.
“They’re out hunting me,” Reinoehl, 48, a father of two, told an independent reporter in the interview posted Thursday by Vice.
“There’s nightly posts of the hunt and where they’re going to be hunting. They made a post saying the deer are going to feel lucky this year because it’s open season on Michael right now.”
Reinoehl told journalist Donovan Farley in the interview that he had no regrets about firing his weapon last weekend.
“I was confident that I did not hit anyone innocent and I made my exit,” he said.
Prior to Thursday's law enforcement action, the assertion that Reinoehl was a person of interest in the Danielson shooting came from Reinoehl’s sister and an anonymous law enforcement source, both of whom spoke this week with The Wall Street Journal.
Reinoehl was a frequent participant in the nightly protests in Portland that have been occuring since the May 25 death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis -- and was reportedly involved in several confrontations.
Among them: In July, Reinoehl suffered a gunshot wound while trying to wrestle a gun away from a stranger, and was also cited for allegedly carrying a loaded gun to a protest on July 5, The Oregonian reported.
On July 26 he was wounded in a brawl in a downtown Portland park.
DEFUND THE POLICE!
