Police found the suspect and one of the victims dead at a science building on the Casper College campus, which was locked down for about two hours, school and police officials said. The other victim was found about 2 miles away.

Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh said the murder-suicide took place in a classroom with students present, but he did not know how many students or what the class topic was.

He said investigators do not know the motive for the killings.

The attacker wasn’t believed to be a Casper College student and it appeared he knew the victims, Walsh said.
