The town of Rainier, Oregon is in mourning today as they remember their Police Chief who was killed the line of duty Wednesday.  Today in Rainier, Police Chief Ralph Painter is being remembered as a wonderful father, husband and grandfather who served on the local police force for 20 years, the past five as Police Chief. Around 11 a.m. yesterday he was responding to a police call at a local car stereo shop.  The suspect, Daniel Butts, 21, of Kalama, Washington was allegedly trying to steal a car. Jeff McCracken is the pastor of the nearby Rainier Assembly of God Church; he witnessed the shooting and almost hit by a bullet himself: “I was in my office n the west end of this building, studying. Heard the sirens, got up to see what’s going on. Police cars from every jurisdiction in the area were pulling in. Semi-automatic weapons, that kind of thing.” In the shooting, McCracken says a bullet came within six inches of his head. The suspect was shot by police and taken to a Portland hospital where he's expected to fully recover.
