Grand Jury Indicts Cheyenne Shooting Suspect On Firearm Charge

Grand Jury Indicts Cheyenne Shooting Suspect On Firearm Charge

A Federal Grand Jury on Tuesday returned an indictment against 25 year old Andrew Weaver of Cheyenne for being a felon in possession of a firearm stemming from a shooting that occurred in Cheyenne on September 16th.

Weaver made his initial appearance in front of Chief United States Magistrate Judge Kelly H. Rankin on September 25th and was ordered to be held in the custody of the United States Marshals Service. Weaver will have his arraignment and detention hearing on September 30th.

The Cheyenne Police Department along with agents of the FBI, DEA, and ATF continue to investigate the shootings of four people in Cheyenne on September 16, 2019. The United States Attorney’s Office is in contact with all agencies involved.

Mark A. Klaassen, United States Attorney for Wyoming, stated, “This indictment is a first step in an ongoing process. My office will continue to do all we can to investigate and develop this case and see that it’s charged appropriately. I appreciate the cooperation that is occurring between our local Cheyenne Police and our federal law enforcement agency partners in this effort.”

An indictment is an allegation and Mr. Weaver is presumed innocent until if and when proven guilty in court.
