A spokeswoman for the Cheyenne Police Department says the investigation is continuing in connection with a Saturday fatal shooting incident.

But as of Monday morning, no one had been arrested in the incident.

Alex Farkas says details of the case have been forwarded to the Laramie County District Attorney for a decision on possible charges.

According to a Monday morning news release from Cheyenne Police, Officers were called to an apartment complex in the 1700 block of Oxford Drive on a report of a domestic disturbance. When they got there they found a 38-year-old man had been shot several times. The man was declared dead at the scene.

Officers contacted a man who claimed to be the shooter and detained him.
