An incident in which two police officers shot an armed man in rural Umatilla County remains under investigation, with the names of the officers and the suspect released Thursday.
Michael Thomas Summers, 52, was shot three times after reportedly refusing to drop a rifle aimed at a Umatilla County sheriff's deputy and an Oregon State Police trooper.
Trooper Ryan Sharp, 24, and Deputy Morgan Dunlap, 33, were placed on paid administrative leave, a standard practice when an officer shoots a suspect.
Summers is in the intensive care unit at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland. He was wanted on a federal parole violation for a weapons offense when the officers encountered him after a single-vehicle crash Tuesday night near Tollgate, police said.

The Pendleton, Hermiston, Umatilla Tribal and Milton-Freewater police departments, and the Walla Walla County Sheriff's Office also are part of the investigation team.
