Trump-supporter death suspect, killed after police shoot-out

Taxpayers Association of Oregon

KATU-2 TV reports that Michael Reinoehl was killed by police after an confrontation. Michael Reinoehl is the top suspect in the murder of a Trump supporter last Saturday in Portland near the site of a protest.   The Daily Mail says “the suspect opened fire on police with a semi-automatic rifle, letting off 40 or 50 shots.”

Police said “There was a confrontation between the officers that were on scene and the subject. The information we have at this time is that the subject was armed. There was shots that were fired into the vehicle, and the subject fled from the vehicle at which time there was additional shots that were fired. ”

Reinoehl was previously accused of bringing a gun to a downtown Portland protest.

Reinoehl was interviewed yesterday from an unknown location where he stated,You know, lots of lawyers suggest that I shouldn’t even be saying anything, but I feel it’s important that the world at least gets a little bit of what’s really going on. I had no choice. I mean, I, I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t going to do that.”

This appears in contradiction to the video which appears to show him hunting down down the victim as he yelled that he had found a Trump supporter and gave his location and then shot him at point blank range.
