Cheyenne police have confirmed the name of the man killed in an officer-involved shooting Wednesday afternoon.

Scott Addison

He’s been identified as Scott Addison, 49, from Laramie. The former therapist was wanted out of Albany County for bond violation.

Addison was facing 25 felony counts after multiple women accused him of sexual assault and attempted blackmail. Deputies say a woman claimed Addison beat, tied up, sexually assaulted and photographed her nude. He then allegedly threatened to send the photographs to others if she told anyone.

Cheyenne police and a sheriff's deputy shot and killed Addison following a traffic stop and stand-off near Dell Range and Ridge Road Wednesday afternoon.

It began with a traffic stop when CPD said Addison had a rifle and refused commands given by the deputies. After an hour he exited the vehicle with a rifle and fired; three officers from the Cheyenne Police Department and a Laramie County Sheriff's Deputy fired back.

Addison was struck and declared deceased at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. No law enforcement officers were injured.

The Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigations investigates officer involved shootings and is doing so in this case. The name of the suspect will be released upon notification of family members. This case remains under investigation.
