CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — At least one person was killed and another was wounded in an attack at a community college in central Wyoming.

Casper College spokesman Rich Fujita says it happened around 9 a.m. Friday. He says police took into custody one person who is injured.

Fujita says the campus has been locked down and students are advised to stay where they're at until police give the all clear.

1. Dick Cheney's alma mater....

Sidebar to the main event, but noteworthy in an odd way...
http://www.thenation.com/blog/163010/chapter-went-missing-dick-cheneys-book#

Unfortunately, the world had a tendency to get in the way of young men who, like Cheney, were of draft age when the US troop presence in Vietnam began to rise in the mid-1960s. As a result, there was one sense in which Cheney mirrored the actions, if not the politics, of his fellow students. Dick Cheney was definitely opposed to the draft, at least as far as it affected him. Indeed, unlike George W. Bush, who performed some sort of service—ill-defined and unrecorded as it may have been—in the Texas Air National Guard, Cheney reacted to the prospect of wearing his country’s uniform like a man with a deadly allergy to olive drab. Between 1963 and 1965, Cheney used his student status at Casper College and the University of Wyoming to apply for and receive four 2-S draft deferments. As the war in Vietnam heated up, Cheney fought to defend and expand his deferments. Twenty-two days after Congress approved the Gulf of Tonkin resolution in August 1964, raising the prospect of a rapid expansion of the draft, he “coincidentally”—in the words of a Washington Post profile—married longtime girflriend Lynne Vincent. The advantage was that even if his student deferment was lifted, his married status might carry some weight with his draft board.

16. Don't forget chimpo's bosses' most disgusting draft dodge

 

Deadeye Dick was such a coward that he used 5 draft deferments. The most disgusting time was when they took away the deferment for married, but childless, conscripts.

9 months & 2 days after that deferment was removed, Coward Cheney's wife had a nice new baby.

2. Huh...

The brief article claims that Casper is the hub of a small oil industry in Wyoming...? I wouldn't call it small, anyone who's ever been to Wyoming would probably agree.

4. Shooting, I presume

It is the preferred method of insanity in my country.
It's not mentioned in the article. I doubt if the attack was a super Kung Fu fighter.

11. Reports of campus violence often really get to me.

This one, surprisingly, not so much.

Arrows? That's very unusual. Maybe even extraordinary.

17. some kind of edged weapon

Asked about reports from students that a bow and arrow were used in the attacks and suicide, Walsh said an "edged weapon" was used but wouldn't specifically identify what weapons were involved in the attacks. No firearms were used, he said.

14. 'Sharp edged weapon' used in two killings, suicide in Casper

'Sharp edged weapon' used in two killings, suicide in Casper

1 hour ago • By the Star-Tribune staff

Casper College and city officials say a suspect used a "sharp edged weapon" to kill two people in Casper, one a college faculty member, in two separate attacks including one in a Casper College classroom.

The suspect, who wasn't a student, then committed suicide with an edged weapon in the same classroom where the suspect killed one of the victims, said Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh.
