Antifa man eyed in deadly Portland shooting took teen daughter to protests

The Antifa security guard reportedly being probed in connection with the deadly shooting of a President Trump supporter in Portland was photographed at a rally the night before — alongside his baseball bat-wielding teenage daughter.

Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was pictured late Friday at a Black Lives Matter protest outside the condominium building that is home to the Oregon city’s mayor, Ted Wheeler, The Oregonian said.

He caught the attention of a photographer because he was there with his 16-year-old daughter, who stood beside him carrying a dark baseball bat, the paper noted.

The former military man — who says he is “100% ANTIFA” — was wearing a distinctive white vest that appears to match one caught on videos of the fatal shooting of a counter-protester, the paper said.

Law enforcement sources have told The Oregonian that Reinoehl is being investigated for the killing, and his estranged sister also confirmed that she contacted police to say he was the man seen in now-viral videos.

Police insisted early Tuesday that the reports are “unverified and unconfirmed,” and Reinoehl has not been officially named as a suspect. No arrests have been announced in the ongoing investigation.

Reinoehl has previously bragged about taking his daughter to protests — even after she witnessed him getting shot in the arm.

“And you brought her again? Are you crazy?” a videographer for Bloomberg news asked him after he pointed at the youngster waiting in his car as he gave an interview from a protest site in late July.
