DOUGLAS, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming authorities say the investigation is continuing into the June 30 fatal shooting of a man by deputy U.S. marshals at his father’s funeral in Douglas.

Deputies shot and killed 44-year-old Jasen Scott Ramirez of Colorado while trying to arrest him outside a church after the funeral service. Ramirez was under federal indictment in Wyoming on drug and weapons charges.

Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation Director Steve Woodson says his agency’s investigation is still ongoing. Converse County Attorney Quentin Richardson said Wednesday he has no indication when the investigation will be completed.

The Converse County Sheriff’s Office and County Attorney’s Office issued a statement after the shooting saying investigators found two handguns in Ramirez’s vehicle and also found roughly 4 ounces of methamphetamine in the vehicle and on his person.
