The father of the man who opened fire and killed five people across Seattle and later killed himself after a citywide manhunt, says his son was a very private person who was "disgruntled" and had been a frequent customer of the coffee shop where his rampage began.

"He was happy sometimes, but not really. He was kind of disgruntled," Walt Stawicki said about his son Ian Stawicki, who fatally shot himself after a killing spree Wednesday.

Seattle's Harborview Medical Center confirmed that Ian Stawicki, who according to his father, was unmarried with no children and had recently worked on a fish processing boat in Alaska, died at 6 p.m. local time Wednesday.

After the shootings began at approximately 11 a.m. when Stawicki opened fire at Cafe Racer Espresso in Seattle's University District, eventually killing four people, he killed a fifth random woman in a subsequent confrontation and stole her car.
