6 charged in fatal robbery attempt
Alaska State Troopers have arrested a group of people in connection with a robbery and fatal shooting in North Pole.
Last Sunday, masked men broke into a home on Gianna's Court. When troopers responded, just after 8 a.m., two men were found suffering gunshot wounds.
One of the men, 60-year-old Charles Baptiste, died at the hospital. Authorities say he confronted the gunmen.
The surviving victim, 50-year-old Wayne Daniel, who was also a resident of the home, sustained a non-life threatening gunshot wound.
Troopers Friday arrested Joshua Erickson, 38, Mealani Jones, 36, Jeremiah Kinnish, 35, Kyle Morris 19, and two juveniles in connection with the case.
Kinnish is a convicted felon and was on mandatory parole for drug charges and attempted escape. Erickson was on probation/parole for criminally negligent homicide. Jones, trooper say, has numerous felony convictions.
