Man dead after fight, shooting in Willow

By November 21, 2011Uncategorized

Alaska State troopers are reporting a homicide in Willow, but no arrests have been made and few details are being released from the incident Sunday night.

Two men apparently got into a fight at a residence on South Susitna Drive near Mile 91 of the Parks Highway. One of the men shot a small caliber pistol in an apparent attempt to stop an assault, but the bullet struck the other man in the head.

The victim has been identified as 61-year old Ronald D. Gunter of Talkeetna.

The Palmer District Attorney has apparently determined that no arrest will be made, at least not now.

The incident remains under investigation by the Alaska Bureau of Investigation.
