Suspect in Deadly Cheyenne Shooting Could Face the Death Penalty
A 25-year-old Cheyenne man could face the death penalty after allegedly killing two people and seriously injuring two others in a shooting in east Cheyenne.
Andrew Weaver was booked into the Laramie County jail Monday night on two charges of first-degree murder and two charges of aggravated assault. He has yet to make his initial court appearance.
Weaver is accused of killing 37-year-old Adrien Butler and 30-year-old Shaline Wymer, who were found shot to death inside their home at 3436 E. 11th Street around 4:30 p.m. Monday.
Police spokesman Officer Kevin Malatesta says two 14-year-old Cheyenne boys, whose names aren't being released, were also in the house and suffered life-threatening injuries.
"They are all unrelated," said Malatesta, who didn't know why the teens were in the house.
"Last I knew, which was this (Tuesday) morning, they were both in the hospital," he added. "One had been life-flighted to Denver and the other is here at CRMC."
Malatesta says police "have evidence to believe" the shooting was methamphetamine-related.
The case remains under investigation by the Cheyenne Police Department.
