CASPER — An investigation continues into a shooting on Casper’s west side early Saturday morning that sent one person to the hospital with a gunshot wound.

Casper Police Department spokesperson Amber Freestone said no arrests have been made and that she did not have a condition on the hurt person.

“It’s not a lethal or life-threatening wound,” she said.

Casper officers and Natrona County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded to multiple calls of “shots fired” at a home at 1704 Brigham Young St. just after 4 a.m. Saturday, the CPD reports.

“Officers responded to the address where numerous individuals were inside and outside in various states of distress,” the news release states. “Individuals needing medical care were transported to Banner Wyoming Medical Center, including one adult male with a non-lethal gunshot wound.”

The report says people at the scene were interviewed by officers and at the Hall of Justice in downtown Casper.
