Authorities investigating early morning home invasion, attempted murder in Palmer
Multiple law enforcement agencies are investigating a home invasion that turned into an assault and attempted murder, leaving a homeowner in the hospital, according to a release from Alaska State Troopers.
Around 1:15 a.m. Thursday morning, troopers responded to a report of a home invasion on Plumley Road in Palmer.
A dispatch from AST states two people entered the home through a window. When the homeowner confronted the strangers with a firearm, one of the intruders shot the homeowner in the arm.
Both suspects fled the residence on foot. The Wasilla Police Department responded with a K-9 unit to track the suspects, but neither was located.
The homeowner was taken to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries. One other person was in the home at the time of the break-in but was not injured.
Multiple units from the Alaska Bureau of Investigation responded. Investigation is ongoing. Authorities are not releasing the names of the homeowners at this time, citing circumstances surrounding the investigation for withholding the information.
