Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton fears that 2011 may be a record breaking year for police getting killed in the line of duty. In the past few days, police were injured or killed in four different shootings: 2 shot and killed in Florida; 4 shot and injured in Detroit; 2 injured in Port Orchard, Washington; and in Oregon -a Lincoln City Police Officer is in critical condition after being shot during a traffic stop. "Certainly it's an unsettling trend and on your mind all the time. I think numbers to date this year will surpass the numbers for the 12 months last year with officers involved in fatalities and homicides. Certainly it's something that's on your mind all the time. You go to bed hoping and praying that the men and women that you serve with aren't involved in something like that." And a manhunt continues in Waldport, Oregon for the suspect; David Anthony Durham, 43, who is from the Portland area.
