Ore. Town Getting Back to Normal after Manhunt

WALDPORT, Ore. (AP) — A tiny Oregon coastal town is cautiously trying to get back to normal after being swarmed for days with police trying to find a man accused of shooting an officer.

Meanwhile, investigators hope an appearance Saturday night on "America's Most Wanted" will unearth clues that will lead them to the suspect, identified as 43-year-old David Durham of Portland.

Police allege Durham shot and wounded a Lincoln City officer during a traffic stop last Sunday. They chased his vehicle into Waldport on U.S. 101 and stopped it with a spike strip. Durham then fled on foot and disappeared.

The resulting four-day manhunt was scaled back when police said they were unsure if he was still around.

Residents said Saturday they're taking some safety precautions but won't live in fear. Many believe Durham slipped past police as they rushed into position and was never hunkered down among the town's vacation homes.
