Authorities have arrested two suspects in a triple homicide at a home in Clark, a tiny town in northwest Wyoming near the Montana border.

Park County Sheriff Scott Steward said the slayings were reported at about 11 a.m. Saturday, and no other suspects are being sought. The names of the victims and the manner of their deaths have not been released.

The two suspects are being held in the county jail, Steward said in a news release.

"There are no other suspects being sought at this time in connection to the case," Steward said in the release.

A neighbor, Robert Bushman Jr., said the victims were a woman, her father and her mother. He said some of his neighbors who saw the victims' dogs chasing two vehicles down the road became concerned and found the three people shot in the home on Big View Road.

"The neighbors are shell shocked," he said.

Bushman said he lives across the road about 600 yards from the house where the killings took place. Big View Road is a dead-end road with four or five homes sitting on 40-acre lots, he said.

"We look out for unusual vehicles," he said, because the road doesn't get much traffic.

He said Saturday is his cleaning day, so he was busy in his house. When he did look outside, he saw his neighbors' house surrounded by law enforcement vehicles and an ambulance. He first thought that his neighbor may have had a heart attack. The homeowners are a couple in their 30s with no children, he said.

He said Clark has about 325 residents, two churches, a couple construction businesses and one elementary school. It is a quiet community where "everyone goest to church."

The Wyoming Highway Patrol said it is assisting the Park County Sheriff's Office in the investigation.

Neither agencies are releasing more information at this time.

Clark is about 30 miles north of Cody off state Highway 120.
