(Newser) – A man wielding a sharp-edged weapon killed one person in a Casper neighborhood today before killing a male teacher and himself in a community college classroom, causing a campus-wide lockdown as authorities tried to piece together what happened. Police found the suspect and one of the victims dead at a science building on the Casper College campus. The other victim was found about two miles away.

The attacker wasn't believed to be a Casper College student, and it appeared he knew the victims, said Casper Police Chief Chris Walsh. He didn't identify the suspect or victims. The attack at the two-year community college, about 250 miles northwest of Denver, occurred just before 9am.

Police investigate the attacks at Casper College on Friday morning in Casper, Wyo.
