December 1, 2012 by  

Attacks In Casper, Wyoming, A man killed one person in a Casper neighborhood before going to a nearby community college campus Friday morning and killing a faculty member and then himself, police said. Police found the suspect and one of the victims at a science building on the Casper College campus, which was locked down as authorities assessed the situation, Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh said. The other victim was found about 2 miles away.

Authorities say the suspect used a sharp-edged weapon in at least one of the deaths. The suspect wasn’t believed to be a Casper College student, but it did appear there was a relationship between him and the victims, Walsh said. The police chief didn’t identify the suspect or but said the victims were a male and a female.

“We’re locating next of kin and working on notification absolutely as fast as we can,” Walsh said. He added authorities don’t believe there is any further threat to the community. “I want to emphasize that this is a horrible tragedy,” Walsh said. “And I want the city to … just feel safe right now. There is no one at large.”

The attack at the two-year community college in Casper, about 250 miles northwest of Denver, occurred just before 9 a.m. while class was in session.

The campus was locked down and the science building was evacuated, but the lockdown had ended by early afternoon.

Political science instructor Chris Henrichsen said he was showing the film “Frost/Nixon” to his Wyoming and U.S. government class when he stepped into the hall to get something for a student and was told a homicide had occurred on campus.
