Alaska State Troopers say one person is dead and another person was injured in what was described as an ‘officer involved shooting’ on Sunday night.
Few details were offered in a dispatch published on-line by the agency. But the incident was reported about 9:07 p.m. near the Seward Meridian Parkway in Wasilla. State troopers received a report of an impaired driver, but the vehicle reportedly failed to stop at the direction of an officer.
Both a Trooper and a Wasilla Police officer were involved in the incident, but the extent of each officer’s involvement is also unclear.
The unidentified driver of the vehicle was reported deceased at the scene. An unidentified passenger received a non-life threatening injury.
Neither officer was reported injured.
The Alaska Bureau of Investigation and the Wasilla Police Department are investigating the incident.
