Cops were primed to think Michael Reinoehl "would not be taken alive." Then a disorganized task force rushed in and killed him.
The report, circulated to local police, describes anarchist and antifa connections as swarming the Pacific Northwest.
“Mr. Reinoehl pointed the handgun that he had in his possession at the officers at the time of the shooting,” read a statement from the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO), which is investigating the incident.
Agencies involved in the police killing of the Portland shooter have actively fought against body and dash cameras.
In a statement, U.S. Attorney General William Barr said 'the streets of our cities are safer with this violent agitator removed' after Michael Reinoehl was killed by police.
He'd been on the run since he was named as a suspect in the fatal shooting of a supporter of the far-right Patriot Prayer last weekend.
Michael Forest Reinoehl was wanted in connection to the killing of a member of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer.
"I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn't going to do that."
