Alaska man accused of pointing shotgun at Troopers

Two Alaska State Troopers say they were threatened with a shotgun while serving an arrest warrant near Manley Hot Springs.

 

The troopers arrived at the home of 56-year-old Trapper Killsmany on Wednesday to arrest him for violating probation.

 

Killsmany's girlfriend answered the door, but the troopers say they were soon met by a man carrying a shotgun.

 

Trooper Andrew Neason says he looked directly down the barrel of the gun before moving it away with his left hand.

 

Killsmany's girlfriend disputes the account, asserting that Killsmany never pointed the gun at troopers and Neason never touched it.

 

Killsmany has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and is in jail at Fairbanks Correctional Center.
