Oregon officer expected to survive Washington shooting

The Associated Press

THE DALLES, Ore. — Authorities say a plainclothes officer from The Dalles returned fire and killed a man fleeing from investigators who hoped to question him in a rape case.

The officer suffered a non-life threatening wound. He was released Thursday from a local hospital.

The Dalles Daily Chronicle reports that officers from Oregon and Washington went to a house in Wishram, Wash., on Wednesday night to question the man.

The Dalles police said an officer who approached the front of the house saw a man with a firearm inside.

The police say the man fled out the back, where officers were stationed, and after a chase of about one block he fired and was killed.

Names of those involved have not been released. The officer is described as a 17-year police veteran.
