Man kills father on college campus

A man shot his father in the head with a bow and arrow in front of a computer science class on a community college campus in Casper not long after fatally stabbing his father's live-in girlfriend a couple miles away. Instructor James Krumm, 56, may have saved some of his students' lives Friday by giving them time to flee while trying to fend off his son, Christopher Krumm, 25, police Chief Chris Walsh said. Police don't know what motivated Krumm to attack his father and Heidi Arnold, 42, a college math instructor. Arnold was stabbed to death near the home she shared with James Krumm. After shooting his father, Christopher Krumm stabbed himself, then fatally stabbed his father, Walsh said. The younger Krumm died soon after.
