CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A man shot to death by Wyoming police after he fired a rifle at them has been identified as a 49-year-old former Laramie therapist accused of sexual assault, sexual exploitation of a child and other charges.

Police on Thursday identified the man they shot the previous day on a Cheyenne street as Scott Addison.

After an hour-long standoff Wednesday, the man exited his vehicle and fired toward the officers, who returned fire. No law enforcement officers were injured.

Addison was a therapist for a mental health services provider that serves Laramie and Cheyenne.

He was scheduled to go on trial Monday in Albany County on two dozen charges, including blackmail, felonious restraint and sexual exploitation of a minor. He had pleaded not guilty and was free on bond.
