WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Authorities have identified a Wyoming man who died in a standoff in the North Dakota oil patch hub of Williston.
Police officers who responded to a welfare check late Sunday afternoon heard two gunshots. After negotiators tried and failed to make contact, a SWAT team entered the building several hours later and found the body of 43-year-old Tobias Lingle inside a camper.
A cause of death hasn't been released, but authorities say Lingle was alone when his body was found.
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A bill that would have allowed people to sue their employers if their policies about LGBTQ people conflicted with their religious or moral convictions is being withdrawn by its sponsors.
State Republican Reps. Cheri Steinmetz, of Lingle, Sue Wilson, of Cheyenne, and Nathan Winters, of Thermopolis, announced Thursday that they were withdrawing their bill, citing a need for a more thorough discussion about it.
