Suspect Released From Custody 5 Days Before Wyoming Shooting
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Law enforcement authorities released a man from custody five days before police arrested him for a Cheyenne shooting that killed two and seriously wounded two others.
Police say they initially arrested Andrew Weaver on Sept. 8 on suspicion of gun theft and methamphetamine possession.
Prosecutors didn't pursue charges and he was released Sept. 11.
The 25-year-old now faces two counts of second-degree murder, one of attempted second-degree murder and two of aggravated assault and battery.
Police say they found Shaline Wymer, 30, and Adrien Butler, 37, dead of gunshot wounds at a home Monday. Two 14-year-old boys, including one shot in the hand, head and stomach, suffered seriously injuries.
Police arrested Weaver nearby.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports a judge set bond Thursday at $1 million. Weaver had no attorney.
