A 14-year-old Cheyenne boy was killed early Monday morning in an apparent homicide, according to the Cheyenne Police Department.

Around 1 a.m. Monday, Cheyenne police officers were dispatched to a residence on a report of a gunshot heard inside the home. Upon arrival, they found the teenage victim.

The boy was transported to the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center by ambulance, where he was then pronounced dead.

The case is under investigation by Cheyenne police and no further information, including the victim’s name, has been released.

However, a GoFundMe page that was launched by an apparent friend of the victim’s family identified the boy as Daniel Barlow. The page also said he was shot in the chest.

“We are asking for anyone that feels lead by the Lord to please donate to funeral costs,” the GoFundMe’s organizer, Ashlea Bradford, wrote. “Nothing can bring my sweet cousin back but hopefully this will help the financial burden on my uncle. Whatever you can help with would be greatly appreciated by our family. Thank you.”

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Cheyenne Police Detective Bureau at 307-637-6521. Additionally, information can be provided anonymously at 307-638-TIPS or at silentwitnesslaramiecounty.com.

The Natrona County Sheriff’s Department is currently investigating a shooting at a Casper strip club over Memorial Day weekend.

Around 12:30 a.m. Monday, the sheriff’s office received a 911 call regarding an adult man who had been shot in the parking lot of Northern Dreams, a strip club that is around 8 miles outside of Casper, NCSO spokesman Sgt. Taylor Courtney told Cowboy State Daily on Wednesday.

The victim was taken to the Wyoming Medical Center with critical injuries, but he is now in stable condition.

While no one has been charged in the shooting yet, police executed a search warrant on a building in a residential area of Casper on Tuesday evening. One person was arrested during this time, but it was for unrelated charges.

There was a heavy police presence in the area where the search warrant was being executed.

Courtney couldn’t reveal much information about the shooting, the victim or a motive, as there is “still so much under investigation.”

“We have no specific information about a threat to the public at this time,” Courtney said.

A Cheyenne woman was arrested Sunday afternoon after firing a handgun at her boyfriend.

According to a release from the Cheyenne Police Department, officers were dispatched to a Cheyenne home around 4 p.m. Sunday in reference to a report of shots fired.

Due to the nature of the call and all parties involved retreating back into the residence and refusing to come out, the SWAT team and crisis negotiation unit were called in.

Both parties eventually came out of the residence without incident.

It was found that after a verbal altercation, Brenda Sutton allegedly fired a handgun at her boyfriend, although the round didn’t strike him.

She was taken into custody on scene and transported to the Cheyenne Public Safety Center, where she was interviewed. She was found to have a warrant in Laramie County for failure to appear in court on an original charge of possession of methamphetamine.

Sutton was booked on the warrant on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
