EDMONTON — An autopsy shows a man who shot dozens of bullets at Edmonton police, killing an officer, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team says the autopsy has also identified the shooter as Norman Raddatz.

The agency says Raddatz was already dead before fire engulfed his home earlier this week.

Police have said they were investigating the 42-year-old refrigerator repairman for anti-Semitic bullying of an Edmonton man and his family.

Several officers were at Raddatz’s home with an arrest warrant when bullets started flying through the front door.

Const. Daniel Woodall, a 35-year-old officer in the hate-crimes unit, died at the scene.
