We now have the suspect identity in the fatal shooting of the Rainier, Oregon Police Chief. Officials say the suspect is Daniel Butts of Kalama, Washington. Rainier Police Chief Ralph Painter, 55, was shot and killed Wednesday morning during a confrontation at a car audio shop. Rainier liquor storeowner Traci Brumbles says she didn't hear the first shot which seems to have been the one that killed the officer, but she saw police surround the building. Police report the suspect was attempting to take a car that did not belong to him. He was wounded by gunfire and is being treated at a Portland-area hospital.
