Suspect in Death of Patriot Prayer Member Dies in Shootout with Feds

The “100% Antifa” suspect allegedly pulled a gun on officers.

The scenes erupting out of Portland, Oregon as of late have been heartbreaking, as Americans battle in the streets, motivated by their own political maladies.

Cities like Portland have been mired in protest for months, beginning after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, and transforming into an angry referendum on the political state of affairs in America.  We have outside agitators, extremists, and the blood-hungry mainstream media to thank for this escalation that has now claimed several lives.

In Portland, a member of the far-right group Patriot Prayer was gunned down last week in the street, with the main suspect in the case having identified himself as “100% Antifa” on social media.

A team of law enforcement officers fatally shot a man suspected of being the gunman who killed a supporter of a right-wing group in Portland, Oregon, last week after a caravan of Donald Trump backers rode through downtown, the U.S. Marshals Service said Friday.

Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was killed as a federal task force attempted to apprehend him near Lacey, Washington, about 120 miles (193 kilometers) north of Portland. Reinoehl was suspected in the killing of 39-year-old Aaron “Jay” Danielson, who was shot in the chest Saturday night, a senior Justice Department official told The Associated Press.

Federal agents from the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service had located him on Thursday after a warrant was issued for his arrest, and Reinoehl pulled a gun during the encounter, the official said. The official wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Reinoehl had spoke to Vice News just days ago, seemingly taking responsibility for the death of Danielson, claiming that his life was threatened.
