CHEYENNE, WYO. (AP) — A man and woman were killed, and two boys seriously injured, in a shooting suspected to be linked to illegal drugs, police said Tuesday. A suspect was arrested.

Adrien Butler, 37, and Shaline Wymer, 30, both of Cheyenne, were found dead of gunshot wounds Monday afternoon, Cheyenne police said Tuesday. The children, whose identities or ages weren't released, had life-threatening injuries.

Previous calls to the small, single-family home on Cheyenne's east side led authorities to suspect a drug connection, police spokesman Kevin Malatesta said.

Police arrested Andrew Weaver, 25, of Cheyenne, a couple hours after the shooting. Police and Wyoming Highway Patrol officers spotted Weaver in a nearby field and he surrendered, police said. No criminal charges were immediately filed.

There was no information on whether Weaver had an attorney.
