(Newser) – Newly released video shows a scary gun battle as an Oregon State Trooper pulls over a military veteran. The shootout happened in late August about 100 miles east of Portland as a trooper pulled over 34-year-old John Van Allen II. Allen shot the trooper in his left side as patrol car dash cam captured everything. Investigators say the trooper returned fire hitting Allen in the chest.
