Michael Forest Reinoehl was a free man living in Washington state after he shot and killed a Trump supporter in Portland, Oregon last week.
Footage captured by a witness shows Reinoehl shoot Aaron ‘Jay’ Danielson in the back during Antifa protests in Portland on Aug. 29.
Danielson was a Blue Lives Matter activist and Trump supporter.
Internet collective 4chan identified Reinoehl before Portland police even knew his name.
Reinoehl was on the lam from the law but he wasn’t exactly hiding in the woods.
Reinoehl was living in a Washington state apartment complex with friends. He didn’t try to conceal his identity. He even gave an interview to VICE magazine in which he blamed the victim fo this own demise.
Trump supporters expressed outrage that law enforcement weren’t trying very hard to capture the fugitive.
As the days went by, with police making no arrest, President Trump fired off a tweet demanding action immediately.
“Why aren’t the Portland Police ARRESTING the cold blooded killer of Aaron “Jay” Danielson. Do your job, and do it fast. Everybody knows who this thug is. No wonder Portland is going to hell! @TheJusticeDept @FBI.”

The end came for Reinoehl as he walked to a mailbox cluster in his apartment complex to pick up his mail on Thursday, Sept. 3.
Agents with the U.S. Marshals Service were waiting to ambush him at the mailbox, but Reinoehl saw them first and let off about 40 rounds from a semi-automatic rifle. He was cut down by a volley of gunfire and died instantly.

Reinoehl’s sister gave a statement to London’s MailOnline regarding her brother’s death: “I wouldn’t say at this point that this counts as bad news.”
Reinoehl leaves behind a teenage son and an 11-year-old daughter, who was protesting with him when he killed Danielson. The little girl was armed with a baseball bat.
