Feds Didn’t Identify Themselves Before Killing Portland Antifa Suspect

  • Civilian eyewitnesses interviewed by Oregon Public Broadcasting and ProPublica agree that they heard no warning from federal agents, and saw no flashing lights that indicated the arrival of law enforcement, just a fusillade that one neighbor likened to a scene out of the video game Call of Duty.
  • Reinoehl, 48, died in the street from gunshot wounds to his head and torso. The shots were fired by local Officers deputized by the U.S. Marshals Service and serving on a Tacoma-based fugitive task force, a common and standard procedure among local-federal partnerships. A U.S. marshal was also part of the team but did not fire.
  • It might never be possible to determine exactly what happened in the estimated 15 seconds of gunfire that left Reinoehl dead, because the men who shot him were not wearing body cameras, the surrounding buildings lacked security cameras, and three people who witnessed critical segments of the shooting have not been interviewed by police.
