Lincoln City officer critically shot during traffic stop; search underway near Waldport
A Lincoln City police officer is fighting for his life after being shot during an overnight traffic stop, and a massive multi-jurisdiction law enforcement search for the shooter this morning will postpone the opening of Waldport schools for two hours.
The 45-year-old officer remains in critical condition after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds while stopping a speeder at 11 p.m. along Highway 101 on the south end of Lincoln City. The unidentified driver of the 1984 Dodge sport utility vehicle fled south on the highway.
A section of the highway has been closed since 11:30 p.m. between NW Sandpiper Drive and the Waldport bridge while a multi-agency search takes place for the suspect, who led officers on a high-speed chase until his truck was stopped by spike strips set near milepost 153. While attempting to elude police, the suspect fired several shots but no other officers were injured. Then the man fled on foot just outside of Waldport.
The suspect is considered armed and dangerous, said Oregon State Police spokesman Lieutenant Gregg Hastings. A reverse 9-1-1 call was made to area residents advising them of the search.
The officer was initially transported to North Lincoln Samaritan Hospital and then transferred by LifeFlight to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland, where next of kin have gathered along with fellow officers and friends.

Prayers for a full and speedy recovery.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
