The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office, aided by the Casper Police Department, executes a search warrant Tuesday at a south Casper apartment building.

A suspect in a shooting Monday at a Natrona County strip club remained at large after a SWAT team executing a search warrant in south Casper on Tuesday evening left without taking anyone into custody, law enforcement said.

The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office and Casper police are seeking at least one suspect in connection with a shooting at Northern Dreams Strip Club just after midnight on Monday morning, a sheriff’s office official said Wednesday.

According to Sgt. Taylor Courtney, the victim, an adult man, was taken to Wyoming Medical Center with critical injuries and a gunshot wound. He was in stable condition as of Wednesday morning.

Many details surrounding the shooting and suspect were not available, as the case is under active investigation. Courtney indicated the sheriff’s office would release more information on Thursday.

No shots were fired when authorities served the search warrant at an apartment building in south Casper, Courtney said. There is no active threat to the general public.

Police, sheriff’s and special response officers responded to 26th and Jefferson streets around 6 p.m. Tuesday, blocking off streets in the area and calling to someone inside an apartment to come out with their hands up. Officers wore tactical gear and police with long guns took up positions on nearby roofs.

The SWAT team entered the apartment, but did not find the person they were looking for.

One arrest was made Tuesday at an apartment building near the search warrant location, but the charges were unrelated to the shooting.
