ALASKA - A man was in a Fairbanks hospital Friday evening after police say he was shot in the face by another man who was motivated by jealousy.
Fairbanks police say a 32-year-old male was at the Sourdough Gas Station with a woman in a vehicle when the woman's husband, 23-year-old Jason Thorton, approached the two of them and shot the man in the face with a .45 caliber hand gun.
The victim was shot sideways through his nose.
He is listed in stable condition and is expected to recover. Thorton is being charged with third-degree assault.
