SEATTLE, Wash. (AP) - A man shot by police as he was sought in connection with the Halloween killing of a Seattle police officer has been identified as 41-year-old Christopher Monfort.

At a news conference Saturday, Seattle assistant police chief Jim Pugel said that a search this morning of Monfort's apartment turned up two rifles and improvised explosive devices, which were disarmed by police before they were removed.

Monfort was in serious condition in the intensive care unit at Harborview Medical Center Saturday. Hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg-Hanson says he underwent hours of surgery Friday and arrived at the hospital in critical condition.

Police say Monfort is suspected of killing Officer Timothy Brenton, who was fatally shot Oct. 31 as he sat in a car with rookie Officer Britt Sweeney after a traffic stop. Sweeney was grazed in the neck.
