The Antifa security guard accused of killing a far-right demonstrator in Portland pointed a pistol at officers when he was fatally shot by members of a federal task force who sought to arrest him on a murder warrant, according to a report.

Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, was walking to his car outside an apartment complex in Lacey, Washington, where he was hiding out when the law enforcement officers pulled up and opened fire on Sept. 3, a witness has said.

He was found to be armed with a .380-caliber handgun, which officers at the scene told investigators he pointed at them, according to Thurston County Lt. Ray Brady, The Oregonian reported.

A spent .380-caliber shell casing was found in Reinoehl’s vehicle and an AR-15-style .22-caliber rifle with the serial number removed was located in the front seat, according to the Sheriff’s Office, the news outlet reported.

Police declined to say where they recovered the handgun, which is undergoing ballistics tests to determine if it is the same weapon used in the Aug. 29 fatal shooting of Aaron “Jay” Danielson, 39, in downtown Portland.
