The following news release was distributed at the request of Lincoln City Police Department. All questions should be directed to their department's listed contact.
Members of the Lincoln County Interagency Major Crime Team, FBI and U.S. Marshals Service are continuing the investigation into the January 23, 2011 shooting of Lincoln City Police Officer Steve Dodds.
Investigators are continuing to follow up on leads and tips as they attempt to track down and arrest David Anthony Durham, age 43, who is suspected of shooting Officer Dodds.
The FBI has released the following information:
"The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the location and arrest of David Anthony Durham, age 43. In addition, the FBI has obtained a federal fugitive warrant for Durham, who is wanted in connection with the shooting of Lincoln City Police Officer Steven Dodds on Sunday, January 23, 2011. A federal fugitive warrant can be obtained when there is a reasonable belief that a suspect may have crossed state lines. In this instance, investigators cited the fact that Durham has expressed a desire to travel or is believed to have traveled to California, the Caribbean and Thailand in the past in order to obtain the warrant."
Officer Dodds condition continues to improve. He has been taken off ventilators and has been awake, alert and in good spirits. He is expected to make a full recovery at this time.
Lincoln City Police Department and investigators of this crime encourage anyone who has information as to the whereabouts of David Anthony Durham, or other information that could help locate him, to contact the Lincoln City Police Department at (541) 994-3636.
