VANCOUVER, Wash. — Vancouver police say the motorcycle officer who was shot and critically wounded is in stable condition Tuesday in a hospital.

He’s identified as 32-year-old Dustin Goudschall, who was hired by the Vancouver Police Department in 2008 and previously served with the University of Arizona police.

Goudschall was shot multiple times Monday after he pulled over a vehicle that had been reported as stolen.

A suspect in the case, 47-year-old James Todd Sapp, was booked in the Clark County Jail for investigation of attempted murder, robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.
