Police in Wyoming say they are investigating a letter
written by a 77-year-old man who shot three people at the senior citizen apartment complex where he lived before killing himself.

Larry Rosenberg gave the letter to complex resident Mary Eastman before he opened fire. Eastman says Rosenberg’s letter expressed frustration about poker parties held in a common area of the complex.

Cheyenne Police Department spokesman Dan Long didn’t comment Thursday on what the letter said but says there may have been “longstanding animosity” between Rosenberg and the victims.

The shooting killed 45-year-old Matthew Wilson, an employee of the apartment complex. Two apartment complex residents, 65-year-old Gregory Gilbert and 74-year-old Larry Warwick, were wounded. Police haven’t disclosed their conditions.

Police say Rosenberg shot himself with a handgun as they approached him.
