Witness Says Police Shot Portland Homicide Suspect Without Warning, Attempting No Arrest

HeadlineSep 11, 2020

In Oregon state, a witness to last week’s police killing of Michael Reinoehl says the 48-year-old anti-fascist activist did not appear to have a gun and was not threatening officers before he was killed in a hail of police gunfire. The witness, Nathaniel Dingess, says Reinoehl was clutching his phone and eating candy outside an apartment complex on September 3 when officers in two unmarked cars converged on him. Dingess says the officers never announced themselves or gave commands before opening fire.
