Search continues in Waldport in police shooting

An Oregon State Police dispatcher says the search continues Tuesday for a man who shot a police officer in Lincoln City and fled on foot from pursuing officers in Waldport.

The man is believed to be 43-year-old David Anthony Durham of Portland, owner of the vehicle that was pulled over Sunday night by Lincoln City Officer Steven Dodds. Dodds was shot multiple times and was reported in critical condition after surgery at Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland.

A manhunt Monday failed to turn up any sign of Durham. Police are urging Waldport residents to report anyone suspicious.
