The ex-wife of a gunman fatally shot by police outside a central Pennsylvania radio station says the man struggled with bipolar disorder. Centre County Coroner Scott Sayers identifies the gunman as 50-year-old Brian Neiman of Pottersdale.

Police say Neiman was killed Friday after he fired at officers and tried to run them over with his vehicle outside WTLR in State College.

Jean Neiman of Mifflin County says her ex-husband could turn angry when he didn't take his medication. She says they frequently listened to the Christian station together before divorcing in 2006.

Police got a tip that an armed man was heading to the station and intercepted him outside. No one at the station was injured.
