Edmonton police were investigating suspected cop killer for anti-Semitic bullying

Edmonton police say a man suspected in the shooting death of an officer was being investigated for an anti-Semitic hate crime.

Spokesman Scott Pattison says Norman Raddatz allegedly mounted an online campaign of bullying against another man in the city.

That person and his family became concerned for their safety and complained to police a few months ago.

Pattison wouldn’t provide more details about the alleged harassment.

Several officers were at Raddatz’s home Monday night 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, was killed at the scene.

A second officer was shot in the back but was saved by his bullet-proof vest.
