Troopers Say Woman Injured In Fairbanks In Officer Shooting

Alaska State Troopers say a woman has been hospitalized with apparently non-life-threatening injuries in Fairbanks after a trooper-involved shooting.

The woman was taken to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital Sunday evening after the incident at a Dale Road home.

Troopers say they responded to the home after getting a report shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday that a woman had pointed a gun at another woman.

Troopers say that during an interaction with the woman who reportedly pointed the gun, responding troopers fired at her, injuring her.

The circumstances of the shooting are under investigation.

According to troopers, the names of the officers are being withheld for 72 hours, as dictated by department policy.
