A Multnomah County grand jury issues a 23-count indictment against Ralph Turner, 61, who's accused of shooting and wounding three Portland police officers near his home earlier this month. Officers were checking on Turner after his fiancee phoned in a report of her husband being despondent and suicidal.   That's when Turner allegedly fired a handgun through the door of his home, causing shrapnel to hit one officer in his bulletproof vest and another officer in the hand. Authorities say Turner then fired a shotgun, which hit Officer Patrick Singh in the abdomen. Singh was critically wounded but is expected to make a full recovery.
