ANCHORAGE -

Alaska State Troopers are releasing few details about a shooting on the Susitna Parkway in Big Lake Thursday night that sent a 33-year-old local man to an area hospital.

According to an AST dispatch released late Thursday, troopers were called at about 8:40 p.m. to the parkway’s intersection with Saquonee Street after reports of a man lying in the roadway.

“The man was pointing at people and it was believed that he had a gun,” troopers wrote. “AST responded and upon arrival a 29-year-old male approached troopers on scene and advised that he had shot the man that was in the road.”

Medics took the wounded man to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center.

In an email to Channel 2, AST spokesperson Megan Peters says the Palmer district attorney’s office has currently filed no charges in the case “because we are investigating, and consulting with the DA, to determine if criminality occurred.” She declined to discuss the events leading up to the incident, citing troopers’ continuing work to determine what happened.

“It is an ongoing investigation,” Peters wrote. “We are not providing further details at this time.”

Peters didn’t have an update on the man’s condition Friday afternoon. She also refused to say whether the man’s shooting might be considered self-defense.

AST spokesperson Beth Ipsen says no road closures were caused by the shooting.
