Attack at Casper College

[Content note: mass shooting, deaths]

There are reports of a shooting at Casper College in Wyoming. Although information is still unclear, recent reports indicate that three people have died as a result. It is being reported as a bow-and-arrow attack. According to updates from the college's Facebook page, a lockdown has been lifted, but personnel not involved with the attack have been encouraged to go home and counselors are available for those who need them. There will be a briefing at 1.30 PM local time, which will be live streamed here. ETA: The briefing was held at 1 PM.

My thoughts and sympathies are with the family and friends of the deceased, as well as with the campus community who are dealing with this horrible situation.

Please feel free to use the comments as a place for discussion, taking care with content notes and other measures to maintain this as a safe space.

Update: The local newspaper has an update here which confirms the attacker is among the deceased. (h/t Shaker Teaspoon, in comments.)
