Michael Reinoehl, who shot “Patriot Prayer” supporter Aaron Danielson on Aug. 29 has been shot dead by law enforcement.

According to NPR, “in a statement, the U.S. Marshals Service said the Portland Police Bureau had issued an arrest warrant for Reinheohl Thursday on a charge of murder. Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force “located Reinoehl in Olympia (Wash.) and attempted to peacefully arrest him.”

In addition “Initial reports indicate the suspect produced a firearm, threatening the lives of law enforcement officers. Task force members responded to the threat and struck the suspect who was pronounced dead at the scene.”

Hours before he was shot Reinoehl confessed to Vice News in a stunning video, claiming “I had no choice. I mean, I, I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t going to do that.”

During his interview with Vice News, Reinoehl made a number of eye opening statements.

He said “I’m, 100% anti-fascist.  I’m not a member of “Antifa.”  I’m not a member of anything.”

He also predicted “Honestly, I hate to say it, but I see a civil war right around the corner.”
