Troopers respond to Big Lake shooting

By KTVA CBS 11 News 8:03 AM June 6, 2014
BIG LAKE –

A man was hospitalized but Alaska State Troopers said charges have yet to be filed following a shooting in Big Lake Thursday night.

Someone reported a man standing in the roadway on Susitna Parkway near Saquonee Street just before 8:45 p.m., according to AST dispatch, and troopers were told “the man was pointing at people and it was believed that he had a gun.”

When AST arrived at the scene, troopers were approached by a 29-year-old man who told them he had shot the man who had been standing in the roadway, a 33-year-old Big Lake resident.

Medics took the 33-year-old man to Mat-Su Regional Hospital, troopers said, and the investigation continues into the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

AST said the case will be referred to the Palmer District Attorney’s Office for a review of possible charges.
