The search for the police shooting suspects ends.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) - A manhunt has ended in SE Portland for two suspects involved in the shooting of a Vancouver, Washington police officer tonight around 9:20 p.m.
The officer is a Vancouver PD sergeant. He was shot during a traffic stop. The bullet struck the officer in the chest but his bulletproof apparently saved his life.
Media sources report that the suspects fled south across the river. Several blocks in Portland had been blocked off as part of the search.
Police took the search extremely seriously according to reports, and brought in everything they had to locate the suspects as quickly as possible.
The suspects had reportedly been seen walking down a street earlier tonight in Vancouver, carrying pillow cases that suspiciously appeared to possibly be packed with stolen items from a nearby residence.
Neighbors called the police, and the suspects fled the area in a vehicle.
One of those suspects reportedly exited the same vehicle during the traffic stop and fired at the Vancouver officer.
The search for the police shooting suspects in Portland concluded sometime after 11:00 p.m.
Agencies involved in the manhunt included Portland Police, the Portland CERT Team, the Washington County Sheriff's Office, Clackamas Sheriff's Office and others.
