A Salem Police officer has been released from Salem Health after receiving treatment for multiple gunshot wounds last night.

The incident happened at around 8:30 p.m. when the officer conducted a traffic stop in the 500 block of Highland Ave. NE. During the stop a suspect shot at the officer. The suspect then fled the scene. The vehicle was located unoccupied shortly after the incident.
