Homeowner shoots suspect sought by Alaska State Troopers


ANCHORAGE (AP) — A Wasilla man fleeing Alaska State Troopers was taken into custody after he was shot by a homeowner.

The 24-year-old man was treated and released for a non-life-threatening injury and remained jailed Thursday.

Troopers forwarded details of the shooting to the district attorney's office for review.

The incident began when an officer just before 4 p.m. Wednesday tried to stop a pickup for an equipment violation in Wasilla. The driver sped off and passed a school bus with red lights activated.

The man jumped out, ran through yards and was confronted by an armed homeowner.
