A 29-year-old Salem man who was on the police department's most wanted list for nearly a year was shot after a 13-mile pursuit and confrontation with officers. Salem Lt. Dave Okada says there were warrants out for Gabriel Diaz's arrest for sex crimes. When police tried to stop him near Cordon Road Northeast, he took off toward the town of Brooks.  Officers finally blocked-in the car near Inland Shores Way and Lockhaven Drive in Keizer. Witnesses say Diaz had something in his hand when he got out of the car and refused to obey officers' demands. He was shot by a 21-year vet of the Salem Police Department, Bruce Fineran,  who is on paid leave as the investigation continues.  Diaz's condition has not been released.
