Investigators have identified the man who opened fire on a state trooper during a traffic stop east of The Dalles on Thursday, although they have not said what might have motivated him to start shooting. John Van Allen II, 34, was shot and killed by the trooper who pulled him over, according to state police spokesman Lt. Gregg Hastings…During the traffic stop, Allen shot at Zistel with a handgun, hitting the trooper in the side, according to Hastings. Zistel managed to return fire and hit Allen in the chest. Allen drove away after being hit, but other troopers found him down the highway slumped over dead in his car. –KATU2
