Updated at 5:21 p.m. ET: A man killed a woman in Casper, Wyo., on Friday and then headed to the campus of Casper College, where he killed a man in a science classroom before killing himself, police said.

The man used "an edged weapon" — earlier described by police, college officials and eyewitnesses as a "bow and arrow-type" weapon — in all three killings, including his own suicide, Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh said.
Walsh wouldn't identify any of the victims, including the killer, pending notification of their families. College officials said the man who was targeted in the classroom was a faculty member, whom they also wouldn't immediately identify.

Walsh did say that all three victims were adults who knew one another and that the killer wasn't a current student at the college. The incident didn't appear college-related, he said.
The man appeared to have acted alone. "There is no one at large, and there is no threat of violence," Walsh said Wednesday afternoon.

Police found the two men on the third floor of the community college's physical science center, where they had been called to investigate a "traumatic injury" at about 9 a.m. (11 a.m. ET), Walsh said. Shortly after they arrived, they received a similar call involving an address about two miles from campus, where they found the dead woman.
All told, 33 local, state and federal officers responded at the campus, which was locked down temporarily while police checked for other suspects, authorities said. An alert on the community college's website said that all classes and activities had been canceled and that counselors were being provided for the colleges faculty, students and staff.
Casper College is a two-year community college of 4,400 students in Wyoming's second-largest city.
The school has a small security team on campus, but they're not armed.
"It's such a small town that Casper police is very close," Fujita said.

10 day waiting period on Bows?
ban all high capacity quivers?
ban "assault bows"?

now... the interesting part is that the perp offed himself... unless it was a crossbow, that would be hard to do with the same weapon. Would like to see how that was done... perhaps someone where can volunteer a demo.

See, the bow doesn't kill you. The sharp pointy thing on the end of the arrow does all the damage. It might be possible to stab yourself with it without involving the bow in the act at all.

True but I'd still bet it was a cross bow.

again.. perhaps you'd be willing to demo that for us? take an arrow and stab yourself to death with it? Thats something one doesnt hear about or the the chance to see every day.

If I had to kill myself with an arrow, I'd probably brace it between my chest and the floor and fall on it. That takes some fucking commitment if that's how he did it.

hello exactly.

thats the point... get it? point? arrow? give me those ribs you...

its not the usual way that you hear of someone killing them self. Took a little creativity, commitment... even if you turn a cross bow around and put a bolt through your chest, neck or head... thats thinking outside the box.

Proceed to the Walking Dead thread for re-education.

/disappointed sigh
Walking dead is a fiction story sir, I'm talking about real life.

Killing a zombie with an arrow, nonsense. I mean, it's technically possible, but it has to be a perfect shot into the brain, either destroying the frontal lobe or severing it from the spine. With such a low percentage shot you are just asking to get mobbed.
