Northern Arapaho, Justice Officials Meet After Detox Center Shooting

Northern Arapaho tribal leaders say they've met with Justice Department officials in Washington, D.C., to discuss racism and hate crimes after a deadly shooting in Riverton.

Northern Arapaho Business Council Chairman Dean Goggles said Thursday the shooting of two men at a detox center July 18 is the latest event in a history of racism in Riverton. The city of 11,000 is within the Wind River Indian Reservation. The detox center is managed by the VOA of the Northern Rockies, which is based in Sheridan.

Investigators say 32-year-old Roy Clyde, of Riverton, fatally shot 29-year-old Stallone Trosper and seriously wounded 50-year-old James "Sonny" Goggles. Goggles is a cousin of Dean Goggles.

Tribal officials want Clyde charged with federal hate crimes. His attorney didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.

Clyde is charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. A preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 5.
