Two people were killed in Wyoming, including himself, over a poker game. The shooter, an elderly man named Larry Rosenberg, is a resident of Heritage Court Apartments, an apartment complex for seniors in Cheyenne.
According to one resident, the 77-year-old man went on rampage because he had been upset because the poker game, held in a common area within the apartment complex, ran three times a week.
Authorities say that the elderly resident shot three people during the incident. One of the victims died, while the suspect fled. He later killed himself while being pursued by police. The state of the other two victims is still unknown.
One resident said that Rosenberg along with other residents were unhappy because the poker game involved nonresidents of the complex and that some guests even slept there. They have even brought up the poker and nonresident issue at a resident meeting, but sadly no actions were done to resolve their complaint.
"If they had kept that damned poker game out of the building, [the shooting] wouldn't have happened," 80-year-old resident Mary Eastman said. "That is my honest opinion."
