The Portland murder suspect who was killed in a police-involved shooting in September allegedly had his hand on a gun in his pocket when law enforcement agents fired 37 bullets and fatally struck him, officials have announced.
Michael Forest Reinoehl exited an apartment near Lacey, Wash., shortly before 7 p.m. on Sept. 3 carrying two bags and walked to a car parked nearby, according to a police update in the investigation, released Wednesday by Thurston County Sheriffs Lt. Ray Brady. That same day, it was revealed that Reinoehl would be charged with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Aaron Jay Danielson following an Aug. 29 pro-Trump car caravan in Portland, Ore.
At the time of the Sept. 3 shooting, a federal task force led by the FBI and U.S. Marshals were conducting surveillance on Reinoehl, a 48-year-old self-proclaimed anti-fascist activist, after a warrant had been issued in connection with the case, officials and reports previously stated.

“...law enforcement agents fired 37 bullets and fatally struck him...”
Let’s hope so.
I won't even venture an opinion as to whether that number was either excessive or necessary. I wouldn't know. I wasn't there.
But I will say it annoys me that in the movies, it usually seems like it only ever takes one shot to take down anybody. They don't even make a sound. They always just drop like a sack of potatoes with that first bullet. It's over. Maybe real life isn't so clean.
One less dirt bag to deal with
2nd-degree??? WTH? Sure looked like 1st-degree to me.
...Reinoehl, a 48-year-old self-proclaimed anti-fascist activist...
The shill who wrote that should be fired.
I think they save 1st Degree murder for self-defense cases like Kyle Rittenhouse.
Thomas Sowell, who was a US Marine, brought this up in one of his books, talking about the amount of bullets expended in these kinds of exchanges versus how many actually hit the target...and this 37 bullets fired is common, even if only a few hit.
What about his accomplices? Its clear from video evidence and eyewitness testimony that he had multiple accomplices to commit murder.
If you are going to shoot, shoot to kill.
Next time, use 38.
"Lets hope so."

Why’d they stop at 37?
“I won’t even venture an opinion as to whether that number was either excessive or necessary.”
Because if they go over 40 it’s more paperwork.
37 shots fired How many on target? 2? 12? 22? All 37?
In warfare it’s something like 10,000 rounds fired per enemy kill...
With him dead, who is he going to identify?
