SEATTLE (AP) — Canadian officials have identified the man who shot and wounded a guard before killing himself at a busy U.S.-Canada border crossing.

The Coroners Service says it was 32-year-old Andrew Michael Crews. He had previously lived in Bremerton, Wash., and had reportedly moved to Seattle recently.

Investigators say Crews was driving a van Tuesday into British Columbia when he shot unarmed border officer Lori Bowcock in the neck and then turned the gun on himself.

Police have not released a motive. Bowcock is expected to make a full recovery.
