The Oregonian reports three suspects are in custody, including one who was the object of a manhunt in southwest Portland.
Chief Mike Reese said officers saw three people coming from a uniform shop and fled in an SUV. A chase ended when the SUV crashed into a utility pole.
Reese says an officer directed his dog to “Take that suspect!” to keep one of the three from fleeing, and then there was a shootout. The man was captured three hours later.
The dog was found beneath a hedge near the shooting scene.
The wounded officer is expected to recover.
The dog was wearing a harness but not a ballistic vest.
