The Man of Portland Shooting is now Under Police Investigation

The suspect of the Portland shooting is being under police investigation, who made fatal shooting at Portland soon after most cars in a caravan of supporters of President Donald Trump had left the city’s downtown streets on August 30 ,Sunday.

The shooting happened as protesters converged on the city for the 94th night in a row. Officers heard sounds of gunfire around 8:46 p.m., Portland Police said in a statement.

A 48-year-old man, named Michael Forest Reinoehl who was accused of carrying a loaded gun at an earlier downtown Portland protest is under investigation in the fatal shooting Saturday night of a right-wing demonstrator after a pro-Trump rally.

Aaron Danielson, a supporter of the conservative group Patriot Prayer, was shot in the chest and died on Southwest Third Avenue near Alder Street Saturday night. He wore a “blue lives matter”-style patch on his clothes at the time of his death. 

Videos and  image of the fatal shooting captured a tall, thin white man in a hat and white tube socks running from the scene at Southwest Third Avenue and Alder Street around 8:45 p.m. Screenshots zeroed in a tattoo of a fist on the man’s neck,  which paved the way to the shooter.  

Michael Forest Reinoehl was previously arrested at an Antifa riot in July and charged with illegally possessing a loaded firearm and other crimes.

Reinoehl’s posts indicate he attended many protests in Portland that began three months ago after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis under the knee of a police officer.

On July 5 at one of the demonstrations, Reinoehl was cited at 2:10 a.m. in the 700 block of Southwest Main Street on allegations of possessing a loaded gun in a public place, resisting arrest and interfering with police.
