The Wyoming man is accused of killing one man and wounding another at a detox center.

[He] was reportedly resentful and “hunting” for homeless people he had observed drinking in local parks.

Roy Clyde, 32, was arrested Saturday after he entered the Center of Hope detox facility through a back entrance, walked into a client area, and shot two men who were lying down on mattresses inside: Stallone Trosper, who died on the scene, and James “Sonny” Goggles, Jr., who was wounded.

Clyde reportedly placed the gun down and walked back out of the detox center as other clients and staff members began barricading themselves in a bathroom. He was arrested not long after.

According to the AP, Clyde—a Riverton, Wyoming city employee—indicated that he was “tired” of cleaning up after the city’s homeless population.
