The Gay Secretary
Portland Police Chief Rosie Sizer said an officer who was attempting to help a man who had set himself on fire accidentally sprayed him with pepper spray.

Sizer said the officer spotted the man in flames Wednesday in downtown Portland and hurried to get a fire extinguisher from the trunk of her patrol car.

Instead, Sizer said, she accidentally grabbed a large can of pepper spray, colored red like an extinguisher.

Portland fire officials said the nonflammable spray had no additional effect on the man.The man, identified as 26-year-old Daniel Shaull of Dodge City, Kan., died at a hospital later Wednesday.

His father, Warren Shaull, told The Oregonian that his son had psychiatric problems and was living on the streets.
