BREAKING: Police Investigating Shooting Outside of Cheyenne Bar
The Cheyenne Police Department is seeking the public's help in its investigation into a shooting outside of the Lamp Lounge this (Friday) morning.
Officer Kevin Malatesta says police were called to the parking lot behind the bar around 1 a.m. after receiving a report of shots fired in the area.
"When we arrived we found the person in a vehicle at that location who had been shot twice," said Malatesta. "That person was transported by ambulance to CRMC and then flown to a hospital in Denver."
The 37-year-old victim, whose name has not been released, is currently in the ICU in critical, but stable condition.
"A green SUV was seen in the area at the time the crime occurred," said Malatesta. "It was driving at a high rate of speed and we believe it may be involved in this incident."
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Laramie County Dispatch Center at (307) 637-6525.
