Officials have identified the man responsible for killing his father and another woman in Wyoming as a 25-year-old man from Vernon.

It happened at Casper College, a Wyoming community college, on Friday morning.

Police said Christopher Krumm, 25, of Vernon, stabbed his father, Jim Krumm, 56, a computer science teacher and his father's girlfriend Heidi Arnold, 42, who was also a professor at the school.

According to police, Christopher Krumm first stabbed Arnold, who was his father's girlfriend, at the home he lived at with his father before going to the college.

Investigators said the 25-year-old then went to the school's campus and shot his father with a bow-and-arrow in front of a group of students in the Wold Physical Science Building.

Police said Jim Krumm tried to fight off his son while students escaped. Christopher Krumm then stabbed himself several times before fatally stabbing his father in the chest, police said.

Sources told Eyewitness News that Vernon police searched the suspect's residence on Grove Street on Friday night.

Neighbors in Vernon told Eyewitness News that Christopher Krumm kept to himself, appeared to be anti-social, and told them he had Asperger's syndrome.

At this point police have not released any further information about a possible motive. The investigation remains ongoing.
