CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Police say a man killed one person in a Casper neighborhood before going to a nearby community college campus and killing a faculty member and then himself.

Authorities say the suspect used an edged weapon in at least one of the killings Friday morning.

Police found the suspect and one victim at a science building on the Casper College campus, which was locked down as authorities assessed the situation. The other victim was found about 2 miles away.

Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh says the suspect wasn't believed to be a Casper College student, but it appears there was a relationship between him and the victims.

Walsh says there is no further threat to the community.
