Investigators Say Reinoehl Pointed Gun At Police Before Being Shot

(Lacey, WA)  --  Investigators say the suspect in last month's deadly shooting of a pro-Trump activist in Portland pointed a gun at officers before they shot and killed him.  The team investigating the incident says it's not yet clear whether 48-year-old Michael Reinoehl fired his gun before officers opened fire on him in Lacey, Washington on September 3rd.  Officers from a federal fugitive task force moved in on Reinoehl on the same day that Vice News published an interview in which Reinoehl claims he shot 39-year-old Aaron "Jay" Danielson on August 29th in self-defense because he thought the Patriot Prayer member was going to stab him and a friend.  Police found a loaded gun on Danielson's body along with a baton and a can of bear spray, which witnesses say he used to spray Reinoehl before Reinoehl shot him.
