Three people were killed after an attack Friday morning at Casper College in Wyoming, the Casper Star Tribune reports. According to reports from The Tribune, two people were killed in a classroom on campus and another body was found at an undisclosed location in the city. One of the victims was a male faculty member. The shooter is one of the dead and reportedly committed suicide, according to KCWY. The station added that the unidentified shooter “was not a current student at Casper College.”
Details of the attack are unclear at this point, but a law enforcement official told NBC News that a “bow and arrow type” weapon was allegedly used.
The college went on lockdown on Friday morning, but police lifted the security restrictions just before 10:00 a.m. local time, according to the college’s Twitter account. The college has cancelled classes until further notice.
Police found two of those killed at a science building on the Casper College campus, and the third at another location about 2 miles away. The suspect wasn’t believed to be a student, Police Chief Chris Walsh said, but few other details about the identity and those of the victims were released, except that two were male and one was female. Walsh said it appears there’s a relationship between the suspect and those killed.
The attack occurred just before 9 a.m. Friday at the two-year community college. Class was in session and the campus was locked down after the attack and the science building was evacuated, but the lockdown had ended by early afternoon.
More details as they come in.
