Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office has released the identity of the suspect who ambushed a deputy in a drive-by shooting.  The shooter is 51-year-old Robert Walesa.  Walesa committed suicide when deputies showed up to his apartment to question him about the shooting of Deputy Brian Wisda.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio says
 

Maricopa County Sheriff’s Deputies confronted Walesa at his apartment complex when it suddenly took a “bizarre” turn.  He says, before deputies had a chance to talk to the suspect, he grabbed a rifle and shot himself dead. Another twist in the story comes from vengeance.  Arpaio says it turns out the suspect was pulled over for a DUI last weekend about four hours before the deputy was shot by someone in a silver Cadillac.  Walesa was arrested for drunk driving, processed and then sent home in a cab.  A few hours later, Walesa’s silver Cadillac was seen casing the DUI Command Center and then a deputy was ambushed and shot multiple times during a routine traffic stop.
