Armed Antifa Confrontation with Armed Portland Homeowner: 1 Dead, 5 Injured

An armed Antifa confrontation with an armed Portland Homeowner near Normandale Park left one woman dead and 5 other people wounded on Saturday just after 8 p.m. Immediately after the incident, Antifa called for members to delete evidence from social media and not talk to investigators, while continually threatening Post Millennial journalist Andy Ngo. 23 police units, 4 fire and medical units arrived at the scene by 9 p.m. Two people were taken into custody, according to KGW.

Police Homicide investigators had extreme difficulty working the scene because people were uncooperative. The PPB only recovered 8 shell casings from the neighbor’s .45. Only one rifle casing was recovered, likely because the rest were removed per the orders of the far-left group, according to Oregon Live.

The scene was extremely chaotic, and a number of witnesses were uncooperative with responding officers. Most people on scene left without talking to police. Detectives believe a large number of people either witnessed what happened, or recorded the incident as it unfolded. This is a very complicated incident, and investigators are trying to put this puzzle together without having all the pieces.

Portland Police Bureau press release

When police attempted to give a press briefing, the Antifa members shouted them down to the point that they gave up and rescheduled the briefing.

The deceased woman was June Knightly, an Antifa/anarchist also known as “T-Rex.” Note the symbols used by Antifa and other far-left anarchist groups on the graffiti around the “memorial” at Normandale Park. A man (the homeowner) involved in the shooting is a machinist named Benjamin Jeffrey Smith, 43, who lives in the neighborhood. He has been growing upset at the constant leftist protests, according to his brother.

Antifa goons and their leftist friends are continually threatening Andy Ngo for reporting on their activities.

And so another evening in once-beautiful Portland, Oregon goes by as an armed Antifa claims another life, this time one of their own.
