Police have identified a Casper resident, 20-year-old Mitchell D. Taylor, as the suspect in this morning's shooting.
One man is in custody and no injuries were reported after police say he walked into Wyoming Medical Center early Monday morning with a handgun and started shooting at hospital staff.
