CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Family members of one man who was shot at a Wyoming senior citizen apartment complex have revealed more details about the shooting.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/2cNjA1G ) that 65-year-old Gregory Gilbert was smoking outside Heritage Court Apartments in Cheyenne on Wednesday when 77-year-old Larry Rosenberg shot him in the neck. Gilbert’s jaw was shattered, but he is recovering in a local hospital.

Rosenberg also shot and killed 45-year-old Matthew Wilson, a complex employee, and injured 74-year-old Larry Warwick before shooting himself outside the complex property after fleeing from police.

Barbara Giersch, Gilbert’s daughter, says all three victims were close friends before the shooting and that they often played poker together, but that poker shouldn’t be the focus of the shooting.

Another neighbor said Rosenberg wrote a letter complaining about the poker games before the shooting occurred.
