On February 19, 2014, at 6:45 pm, Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputies and EMT's responded to the 200 block of Nelson Street, in Wright, Wyoming, in reference to a 911 emergency call.
On scene, law enforcement identified a 48-year-old male apparent gunshot victim lying outside of the residence. Deputies on scene administered CPR until EMT's arrived and transported the victim to Campbell County Memorial Hospital, where the victim was DOA.
The investigation revealed that the 48-year-old victim was fatally shot by a 15-year-old male who lived at the residence.
The circumstances surrounding the shooting are still being investigated. The 48-year-old male victim is being transported to Rapid City, South Dakota, where an autopsy will be performed.
No arrest has been made.
“At this time we are conducting a death investigation. The information available to us at this time certainly is not leading down a path of a specific crime that has been committed.”--Lieutenant Eric Seeman
Seeman said the 48-year-old was not a Campbell County resident.
Seeman said more details on the circumstances surrounding the shooting are expected to be released tomorrow.
