Police report shows gunman's declining mental stateon May 31, 2012 @ 2:21 pm (Updated: 3:55 pm - 5/31/12 )
In a police report provided by the Seattle City Attorney's Office, Ian Stawicki's girlfriend called 911 after he began to destroy her personal belongings then assaulted her.
According to the documents, Stawicki had given her a bloody nose.
"The victim thought that sometime in December the suspect suddenly changed his personality," the police report states. "Although the suspect always 'had a temper,' he began breaking the victim's belonging when he flew into his rages. This behavior frightened the victim and she resolved to call 911 is it continued."
The charges were later dropped when his girlfriend changed her story. She said she was prone to nose bleeds and Stawicki never hurt her.
His brother, Andrew Stawicki told The Seattle Times that Ian Stawicki was mentally ill.
"It's no surprise to me this happened," he told The Times. "We could see this coming. Nothing good is going to come with that much anger inside of you."
Stawicki had a permit for six guns in 2008, according to the documents.
