ARLINGTON, Wash. -- A sniper killed over the weekend in a shootout with police 50 miles north of Seattle was a disabled military veteran who was recently divorced.

The Snohomish County medical examiner s office confirmed Wednesday it was 60-year-old Robert Edward Endrizzi and said he was killed by multiple gunshot wounds.

A sheriff s spokeswoman says two deputies are on leave for the investigation into Sunday s shooting in Arlington.

The Daily Herald reports Endrizzi was a recently divorced military veteran on disability who bought the blue one-story rambler in January.

His mother, Kathleen Endrizzi, of Mount Vernon, said her son took medication for bi-polar disorder.

A man in his 20s was shot in the leg in his driveway. A number of police vehicles and other cars were hit by bullets.
