    Suspect in fatal Portland protest shooting killed by feds during arrest attempt

    The suspected gunman who fatally shot a right-wing protester in Portland last weekend was reportedly shot and killed by law enforcement authorities Thursday night as they attempted to arrest him. Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, died in Lacey, Washington, where federal agents were attempting to take him into custody for the shooting — the same night his interview on the shooting aired on Vice News, the New York Times reported.

    More details from The Olympian:

    Thurston County sheriff’s Lt. Ray Brady said the Pierce County sheriff’s fugitive apprehension team, working as part of the U.S. Marshals Service Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force, was in the area looking for a wanted homicide suspect when they saw the suspect come out of an apartment, to a vehicle. They said he appeared to be armed.

    “The suspect came out to the car,” Troyer said. “They attempted to put him into custody and shots were fired.”

    There was “a confrontation” between the officers on scene and the man, Brady said. Officers fired shots into the vehicle and the suspect ran from the car, Brady confirmed, then officers fired more shots.

    As of 10 p.m., Brady had not yet confirmed whether the suspect fired a weapon at law enforcement officers.

    Reinoehl was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The same night he was shot and killed by law enforcement, the Portland protester linked to deadly shooting spoke for the first time exclusively on Vice News Tonight. Great job giving this scumbag the opportunity to spew lies about his dead victim, Vice! This guy is completely unhinged and goes virtually unchallenged during the interview. Watch below.
