Three people were killed Friday in an attack involving a bow and arrow-type weapon at Casper College in Casper, Wyo., police and college officials said.
The attack occurred before 9 a.m. (7 a.m. ET) at the physical science center, said Rich Fujita, a spokesman for the college. Police indicated that the weapon on campus was a "bow and arrow type," Fujita told NBC News.
Police told NBC station KCWY of Casper that two of the bodies were found on campus. One appeared to be a male faculty member, and the other appeared to be of "student age," Fujita said. The third body was found off campus.
The campus was locked down temporarily while police checked for other suspects, but the lockdown was later lifted. 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.
