Bend Police Chief Sandi Baxter says the fatal shooting in Rainier is a reminder to officers in Central Oregon.  On Wednesday morning Rainier Police Chief Ralph Painter was shot and killed after a struggle with a 21 year old man who was allegedly trying to steal a car. Bend Police Chief Sandi Baxter says while she didn't know Chief Painter personally; it affected her and other officers throughout the state. "What it is; is it's often a reminder that any type of incident that could have easily been Bend, Oregon.  We handle those kinds of calls daily and it's a reminder to all of us that this kind of situation doesn't just happen in the big cities. We had the Woodburn incident that happened a couple of years ago and that was a small city, and now this; so it’s just a reminder to the officers that you just never know what's around the corner." Baxter says Bend Police Chaplain Jim Crowley is in Rainer helping the police department and community deal with the trauma.  Thursday, the flag at City Hall was flying at half-staff and throughout the day, people added to a memorial on the steps of City Hall.
