Alaska State Troopers say an 18-year-old man is facing an attempted murder charge after shooting another man in the head at a Palmer residence.
The victim was reported to be in critical but stable condition after the Saturday shooting.
Troopers had responded to a report of a shooting at a Palmer home on the Old Glenn Highway when they arrived to find a 35-year-old man shot in the head. The alleged shooter had fled the scene.
The suspect was later found during a traffic stop.
Troopers say they have recovered the rifle used in the shooting.
The suspect is being held at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility without bail.
An investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
