November 27, 2018

CODY, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming man has died after setting fire to a camper following a brief interaction with officers in Cody.

The Cody Police Department says officers responded about 12:05 a.m. Friday to the report of a male suspect threatening to kill himself and harm others.

The Cody Enterprise reports that upon their arrival officers made brief contact with the suspect. The suspect refused to speak with the officers and retreated into a camper on the property. A short time later officers observed the interior of the camper was on fire.

Due to the intensity of the fire, officers were unable to enter the trailer to physically remove the man, whose name was not immediately released.

This incident is under investigation.
