Gunshot Report was False Alarm

Staff    4-14, 2016

A building that houses a number of State agencies was placed on lockdown yesterday morning. Dan Long with the Cheyenne Police Department says officers responded yesterday morning to the building at the corner of Storey and Yellowstone to a report of a gunshot.

Long says even though there was no evidence found of gunshots, they take all these reports seriously.

Long says there may have been some reports or threats of violence at the same location in the past. Mary Quast, spokesperson for Laramie County School District #1, says that Davis Elementary School – located just north of the building – was also briefly placed on lockdown while the police investigated the potential gunshot.
