Woman wounded, man dead of self-inflicted gunshot in Wyoming


CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A man fatally shot himself after shooting a woman in the head, police in Cody said.

The 44-year-old woman was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Neither her identity nor the 76-year-old man's was released.

A two-hour standoff with Cody police and Park County sheriff's deputies Monday began after the woman left a camper at an RV park and sought help at a gas station, saying her boyfriend shot her during an argument.

The man followed her to the gas station but went back to the camper when police arrived, the Cody Enterprise reports.

Police approaching the camper say they heard what sounded like a gunshot.

Officers surrounded the fifth-wheel camper and at one point fired what appeared to be smoke or concussion grenades. They used a megaphone to talk to someone inside and deployed a bomb robot.

The robot confirmed the man had died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.

Police continued to investigate what happened.
