Portland Police detectives identified the person they were seeking who was present and witnessed the shooting death of Aaron J. Danielson on August 29, 2020. Detectives are grateful for community assistance in this matter. There is no further need for tips as to his identity.


On Thursday, September 3, 2020 Portland Police Bureau detectives prepared an affidavit in support of an arrest warrant. The affidavit was presented to a Multnomah County Circuit Judge, who reviewed the affidavit and issued a warrant for the arrest of 48 year old Michael Reinoehl, for Murder in the second degree, with a firearm (ORS 163.115), and Unlawful Use of a Weapon, with a firearm (ORS 166.220).

Mr. Reinoehl was wanted in the shooting death of 39 year old Aaron J. Danielson. Mr. Danielson was shot and killed near Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Alder Street on August 29, 2020.

Portland Police collaborated with law enforcement partners throughout the investigation, but were not present during the attempt to take Mr. Reinoehl into custody in Washington State, and defer questions about that incident to agencies involved.

This case is still under investigation. Portland Police detectives would like the community to help identify a person who was present and witnessed the shooting downtown on August 29, 2020. Detectives would like to interview this person (picture).
