Robin Munis, 40, was singing with a country band on stage at a bar in Cheyenne, Wyoming when she was shot in the head and killed. The shot came from outside the Old Chicago Restaurant just after midnight. A rifle was said to be used to kill Munis. No one else at the restaurant was hurt.

Police are now looking for Munis’ estranged husband, David Munis, 36, who they say has had sniper training. He is a second lieutenant in the Wyoming Army National Guard who is attached to the guard’s training camp. He joined the National Guard in April 2003 coming from active duty in the U.S. Army. There, he went to sniper school. He is due to become a second lieutenant next month. He has a collection of guns including a .308 and 7-millimeter rifles. The bullet used to inflict the deadly wound has been found and recovered.

Robin Munis had reported that she had received a threatening phone call from David a day before the shooting. She worked at the state Department of Health’s Developmental Disabilities Division as a policy analyst. That night, she was singing with Ty and the Twisters at the restaurant. After the shooting, witnesses saw a black pickup truck speed out of the parking lot. Munis drives a 1999 four-door extended cab Dodge Ram pickup with gray at the bottom. He has brown hair and hazel eyes. Police evacuated a part of the building after arriving on the scene and sectioned off the parking lot with police tape. At 4 a.m., the body was removed from the scene after relatives were called in to the investigation.
