Troopers Shoot, Kill Palmer Man

Alaska State Troopers  have fatally shot a 19-year-old Palmer man they say was threatening officers with a gun.

Troopers say Adrian Spindler died at the scene of the shooting early Monday morning.

Troopers responded to a home after getting a 911 call shortly before 1 a.m. indicating there was a suicidal man with a gun there. Wasilla police also responded.

According to the Troopers, officers negotiated by phone and in person with Spindler for about an hour. Two women inside left the home safely.

Troopers  shot Spindler after he exited the home and threatened officers with a gun.

The shooting is under investigation.
