Suspected Shooter in Normandale Park Mass Shooting Identified

Source: Portland Mercury

Smith, 43, has lived in an apartment across from Normandale Park for more than a decade, and has harbored growing animosity against Black Lives Matter protesters, COVID-19 mask mandates, unhoused Portlanders, and liberals, according to his roommate, Kristine Christenson.

Smith's brother told the Oregonian that Smith would often complain about the Justice for Patrick Kimmons demonstrations that regularly took place in Normandale Park. Kimmons was a Black man killed by Portland police in 2018. Kimmons supporters had gathered Saturday evening at Normandale to hold a demonstration in support of Amir Locke, a Black man killed by Minneapolis police earlier this month.

Christenson told the Oregonian that Smith collect guns, and kept at least four in his bedroom. "He talked about wanting to go shoot commies and antifa all the friggin' time," Christenson told OPB. "He was just a sad angry dude. ... He talked about wanting to do this for a while. He was angry at the mask mandates, he was angry at the damned liberals."

According to witnesses, Smith approached four unarmed woman gathered near Normandale Park Saturday night and yelled at them to leave. The women were all volunteers, assisting march organizers in slowing traffic to allow demonstrators to march down the street. Within minutes, Smith had allegedly opened fire on the four women, striking all four with bullets. One of the women, June Knightly, died at the scene.

Couple of observations:

1. This was ANOTHER unsable man with a gun, and of course, he shot women (and others). He doesn't appear to have been in any of Portland's RW Militias, but he sounds pretty RW.
2. A good guy with a gun shot a Rampage Shooter - an actual Defensive Gun Use - finally - and they were probably Antifa and/or BLM. Put that in your Anit-Antifa pipe and smoke it.
