Stepdad of Border Guard Shooter Says He Texted Mom

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) -- The stepfather of a motorist who police said wounded a Canadian border guard at a U.S.-Canada crossing before killing himself said the 32-year-old Seattle man texted his mother hours earlier to say he loved her -- and was sorry.

Danny Lupinek of Henderson said Andrew Crews didn't indicate what he meant in that Tuesday text, and the family was unable to reach him after that.

Canadian investigators said Crews was driving into Canada in a van Tuesday afternoon when he shot Officer Lori Bowcock in the neck at the Peace Arch border crossing at Blaine, about 100 miles north of Seattle. He then fatally shot himself.

Police haven't discussed a motive.
