CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Two men are dead with gunshot wounds in a robbery at a rare-coin business in downtown Cheyenne.

The shooting happened around 9:30 Monday morning at a business called The Coin Shop. Police identified the victims as 76-year-old George Manley and 67-year-old Dwight Brockman.

A suspect described as a male around 5 feet, 7 inches tall remained at large. Police say at one point they heard the suspect might have hopped on a freight train but that lead didn’t pan out.

The Coin Shop buys and sells rare coins and gold and silver bullion. The shop had just opened its doors for the day. Police weren’t saying if the suspect fled with anything valuable.

Police closed part of a busy thoroughfare in front of the shop during their investigation.
