Troopers: Suspected DUI driver, 52, shot and killed in Wasilla after failing to stop

Shots fired by a Wasilla police officer and an Alaska State Trooper killed a suspected drunk driver who tried to elude them Sunday night, troopers said.

 

Both fired at Gorden E. Samel, 52, of Wasilla, after he backed his pickup toward the officer following a brief but chaotic chase, according to troopers.

 

An adult male passenger in the truck received injuries described as not life-threatening; he was not identified.
