Rainier Officer Recovering After Shooting

By Jim McCoy Tue 24th June Newsofficer shooting
A police officer shot during a traffic stop in Rainier, Oregon, is reported in fair condition at a Portland hospital. Authorities say Officer Russell George was shot Monday by a motorist he stopped on U.S. Highway 30. The bullet went through the Rainier officer's hand and hit his chest, which was protected by a bulletproof vest. The suspect was found dead hours later near Clatskanie, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He has not been identified. Rainier is a city of 1,900 residents northwest of Portland. Three years ago, police Chief Ralph Painter was fatally shot after responding to a report of a suspicious person at a car stereo shop.
