Antifa gunman seen outside Portland Mayor’s home hours with 'baseball bat wielding son before he killed MAGA martyr’
AN Antifa gunman was seen outside the mayor of Portland’s home before be shot dead a Donald Trump supporter.
Michael Reinoehl, 48, was pictured at Ted Wheeler's house, allegedly with his baseball bat wielding teenage son, and the following night shot dead Aaron 'Jay' Danielson.
The 39-year-old Danielson, a Trump loyalist and a supporter of the conservative group Patriot Prayer, was shot at point blank range on August 29.
Reinoehl described himself as "100 percent Antifa" and was himself killed by US Marshals in Washington State, who claimed he opened fire on them when they attempted to arrest him.
According to a new book by journalist Andy Ngo, Reinoehl was detained and cited for possessing an illegal and loaded gun in a public place, resisting arrest and interfering with police on July 5.
In 'Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy' Ngo details how day prior to Danielson’s murder, Reinoehl attended a BLM-Antifa riot outside Wheeler’s condo.
He was photographed with his son, who was brandishing a baseball bat, alleges Ngo, in an excerpt published by the New York Post.
Reinoehl reportedly has two children, a son aged 17 and and 11-year-old daughter.
Two months before the shooting, Reinoehl was detained at another Portland protest for illegal possession of a gun.
He was pictured with a pistol on the ground beside him but was later released after claiming to be injured, claims Ngo.
Reinoehl went on the run immediately after killing Danielson, who he falsely claimed had threatened him with a knife.
Couurt documents reveal Reinoehl appeared to lie in wait for Danielson, who also went by the alias Jay Bishop, before the shooting.
He also texted his own son an offer to trade marijuana for a handgun weeks before the murder of Danielson, who was himself armed.
Footage from various angles show a man with the same neck tattoo as him fire two shots at Danielson before walking away.
His friend Chandler Pappas two men approached him and Danielson from behind saying “we got a couple right here” and someone shouted “pull it out” in reference to a gun.
The killing came after clashes shot in downtown Portland between pro-Trump and Black Lives Matter groups, who Reinoehl acted as security for.
While on the run he gave an interview with Vice News in which he predicted a civil war in the United States.
Reinoehl was shot dead after he reportedly opened fire on a US Marshals task force with an "assault rifle" when they tried to arrest him in Lacey, southwest of Seattle.
