CASPER, Wyo. (AP) – Authorities say a murder-suicide at a central Wyoming community college happened in a classroom while class was in session.

Casper Police Chief Walsh says a man wielding a sharp-edged weapon killed one person in a Casper neighborhood Friday morning before going to the nearby Casper College campus.

The man entered a classroom in a science building and killed a teacher, then himself, in front of students.  The other victim, a woman, was found in a street about 2 miles away. No names have been released.

Police say the suspect used a sharp-edged weapon in at least one of the attacks, and no guns were involved.

Walsh says the suspect wasn’t believed to be a Casper College student but he did know the victims.
