Hours after police obtained a warrant for his arrest Thursday in the killing of a right-wing activist in Portland, Ore., Michael Reinoehl was gunned down by members of a federal fugitive task force staking out an apartment outside Olympia, Wash., where they believed he was staying.
Law-enforcement officials said Mr. Reinoehl, 48 years old, was armed with a handgun and had drawn the weapon, which led four members of the task force to open fire as he tried to drive away. They shot at him again as he ditched the car and attempted to flee on foot, the officials said. He eventually collapsed in the street and was pronounced dead at the scene.
