A man was killed and a toddler wounded in a shootout with U.S. marshals and police at an airport in a small coastal town in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula.
Authorities were investigating the gunfight Wednesday evening in Homer that killed Jason Carlo Jacob Anderson, 31, of Minnesota, who was wanted for methamphetamine trafficking. Two children were in a rented car with Anderson.
Authorities were releasing few details Thursday morning, but witnesses said Anderson opened fire on the officers and they shot back.
The injured child, a 2-year-old girl, was hospitalized, but her condition was not immediately available, according to U.S. Marshal Randy Johnson. The other child was not injured.
Johnson declined to elaborate on the shooting, citing the ongoing investigation by state troopers.
