James Krumm was shot in the head by an arrow fired by his 25 year old son, Christopher, who shortly before had also stabbed his dad’s 42 year old girlfriend, Heidi Arnold, to death.
Both Krumm and his girlfriend taught class at the Casper College in Casper, Wyoming.
What led to the deadly confrontation is still being investigated but police are certain that if James Krumm hadn’t fought off his son despite he was mortally wounded, students would have been killed on Friday.
“I have never seen anyone with such great courage,” said police chief Chris Walsh of teacher James Krumm, who has since died from his injuries. “I hope that knowing this can console some people because without that great courage there would have been more victims.”
According to police, Krumm’s son entered the college with a special hunting bow he had hidden under a blanket. First he proceeded to where his dad’s girlfriend was giving class and stabbed here several times. She was found dead outside the college with several knife wounds.
He then went to the classroom where his dad was teaching and shot an arrow in his father’s head.
Despite being critically injured, Mr. Krumm diverted the attention of his son from the students to himself by beginning a fight with him, thereby allowing the 6 students to run out of the classroom unhurt.
Once the students were safe, Mr. Krumm stopped fighting. His son then administered a fatal stabbing to himself, taking his own life.
Other students tried helping Mr. Krumm but the door had locked behind the last student and everyone was forced to wait until a maintenance man arrived with a key to unlock the door.
