(Newser) – New details are emerging about the man suspected of a fatal shooting over the weekend during clashes between supporters of President Trump and counterprotesters in Portland, Ore. The Oregonian reports that Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, has identified himself as "100% ANTIFA all the way!" in an online post. And at an earlier protest in July, Reinoehl was cited by police for possessing a loaded gun in public and resisting arrest, though the allegations were later dropped. More:

  • The victim: Aaron "Jay" Danielson, a supporter of the conservative group Patriot Prayer, was shot dead Saturday night, per the New York Post. “We love Jay and he had such a huge heart,” wrote Joey Gibson, founder of the group, in a Facebook post. Patriot Prayer was founded in Washington state in 2016, and supporters have made periodic trips to Portland to support Trump amid the George Floyd protests, reports the AP.
