A Eugene Police Officer was shot and killed late Friday afternoon while attempting to make a traffic stop on a woman on Interstate 105. Instead of stopping, the woman sped into Springfield to the intersection with 52nd Street where traffic forced her stop. The officer pulled up near the car and put his motorcycle on its kickstand. The woman produced a handgun and shot 12-year veteran police officer, Chris Kilcullen. He fell against the rear tire of a semi-trailer truck stopped at the intersection.   The woman then lead a number of officers on a further pursuit through Lowell and to a rural forest service road, and stopped at a dead end. Officers arrested Cheryl D. Kidd, 53, of Springfield. Officer Kilcullen was a highly decorated and popular officer, and leaves behind a wife and two children. A candlelight vigil was held for the fallen officer at the Eugene City Hall Saturday night.
