CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Major crimes, such as murder, are a rare occurrence on the campuses of Wyoming's seven community colleges.
Last Friday, a Casper College instructor was attacked and killed in his classroom.
Police say 56-year-old James Krumm died when his 25-year-old son, Christopher Krumm, shot him with an arrow in front of a handful of students. Christopher Krumm then stabbed himself to death. No students were hurt.
Matt Petry of the Wyoming Community College Commission says he can't recall ever hearing about a crime that serious occurring on a community college campus in the state.
Federal crime reports each college must file every year show an occasional assault or sex offense, but the vast majority of reported crimes at community colleges are limited to burglaries and alcohol violations.
