Original story:
The suspect in a Cheyenne shooting and one of his three victims are dead. The condition of one of the victims is unknown. The shooter has been identified as 77-year-old Larry Rosenberg, a resident of Heritage Court Apartments on Gregg Way where the shooting took place.

The incident started at 11AM. Police responded to 3912 Gregg Way off of college drive on the report of an active shooter. Rosenberg had allegedly shot two people outside the apartment complex and one person inside.

Rosenberg then fled to the area of Hot Springs Ave. and Chestnut Dr. where police say he shot and killed himself. Officers did not fire any shots. Rosenburg was in possession of a handgun and rifle. It's unclear at this time if both guns were used in the shooting.
