Teen kills attempted abductor in Wright, Wyo

Posted:

       GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) _ Campbell County sheriff's officials say a 15-year-old boy fatally shot a man who was trying to abduct a woman in Wright.
 
       The shooting happened Wednesday night.
 
       Sheriff's officials said Friday they had responded to reports of an attempted abduction at a home in Wright. They arrived to find 48-year-old Sammy Michael Fears, of Casper, wounded in the driveway. Fears died on the way to the hospital.
 
       It's not clear how the teen became involved. Sheriff's Cpl. Gary Sams says the teenage shooter had no family relationship to either Fears or the woman.
 
       He says Fears and the woman had a history of domestic violence going back a few years.
 
       The teen has not been charged.
