   The story so far: Cooper's assailant was wearing a mask to avoid
identification by Cooper.  Therefore, Cooper was expected to survive.
Therefore, the gunperson knew about the vest, hence about the stakeout.

   My previous posting pointed out that Ed Hurley, Hawk, and Harry
Truman were all too tall to be the gunperson, and Andy was on the
phone at the time.  Lucy had knowledge of the stakeout and may be
the right height, but is clearly an implausible suspect.

   Let's ask what the motive for the shooting could have been.  
Cooper's big accomplishment was catching Leo & Jacques.  If the
reconstruction last week is to be believed, the time Laura spent
with those two did not directly lead to her death.  Thus, Cooper
was NOT on the point of making some big discovery that would have
broken the case.  What has been the main result of the shooting?

   ALBERT SHOT COOPER TO GET HIMSELF SENT BACK TO TWIN PEAKS

  (Don't ask me why he wants to be sent back.  Maybe he feels he has
  some unfinished personal business with Harry Truman, or professional
  business with Laura.  Maybe he's a masochist.)
