Followup WY: AR-15 used in Defense
Morrison reportedly went back into the house, where he collapsed.
Cheyenne Police's investigation revealed that Mathis was following Morrison toward the front door of the house with the pistol in his hand before Painter fatally shot him.
Although the investigation remains open while detectives await finalized reports, Long said it appears that Painter acted in self-defense.
Long said Painter has not been arrested or charged with any crime.
Initial information released by Long said that Morrison, who was reportedly shot first, was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center after the shooting and died there.
