You can run but you can’t hide the old saying goes.
Well, Michael Reinoehl, the Antifa shooter who recently killed a Trump supporter was shot by law enforcement during an operation by a federal fugitive task force.
Michael was shot in Lacey, Washington by law enforcement after witnesses say the Antifa shooter Michael Reinoehl was armed and drew his weapon on officers.
It was a joint operation between the U.S. Marshals Service, the Lakewood Police Department, the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, and the Washington State Department of Corrections.

Fox News released these details about Michael Renoehl being killed by law enforcement:
An Antifa sympathizer who was said to be a suspect in the fatal shooting of a Patriot Prayer supporter in Portland, Ore., last month was reportedly killed Thursday night as authorities moved in to arrest him.
Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, died in Lacey, Wash., outside Seattle, during an operation by a federal fugitive task force, The New York Times reported.
Reinoehl’s death was also confirmed by a senior Justice Department official, according to The Associated Press. The suspect was shot by law enforcement after drawing a gun on officers, the AP report said.
The task force was composed of personnel from the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service.
In a statement early Friday, the Marshals Service said the task force was acting on a murder warrant issued for Reinoehl by Portland police.
“Initial reports indicate the suspect produced a firearm, threatening the lives of law enforcement officers,” the statement said. “Task force members responded to the threat and struck the suspect who was pronounced dead at the scene.”
The crazy part about the situation is he had an interview with Vice News five days after he committed murder.
In the interview, he said the killing of the Trump supporter was “justifiable”.

Kyle Rittenhouse was quickly charged with 1st degree murder.

The New York Times contributed to the story and added these details:
Law enforcement agents shot and killed an antifa supporter on Thursday as they moved to arrest him in the fatal shooting of a right-wing activist who was part of a pro-Trump caravan in Portland, Ore., officials said.
The suspect, Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was shot by officers from a federally led fugitive task force during the encounter in Lacey, Wash., southwest of Seattle, according to four law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation.
Lt. Ray Brady of the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office said in an interview that the suspect being sought by the law enforcement team had exited an apartment and got into a vehicle.
“As they attempted to apprehend him, there was gunfire,” Lieutenant Brady said. He said four law enforcement officers fired their weapons.
Lieutenant Brady said that the officers at the scene reported that the suspect was armed, but that investigators had not confirmed that as of early Friday morning.
An arrest warrant had been issued by the Portland police earlier Thursday, on the same day that Vice News published an interview with Mr. Reinoehl in which he appeared to admit to the Aug. 29 shooting, saying, “I had no choice.”
Antifa members quickly responded to Michael’s death and started rioting as they usually do.
They claimed the officer’s executed Michael when in reality he died in a shootout.
Antifa people in the replies are claiming NYT is in cahoots with fascists and Trump supporters for reporting that the Portland shooter “was killed in shootout” as opposed to “police executed him.”
These people are seriously mentally ill.
