FAIRBANKS, Alaska - A Fairbanks man was arraigned on attempted murder charges today in Fairbanks District court after a standoff yesterday in South Fairbanks.
43 year-old David Cagwin is charged with first degree Attempted Murder, second degree Weapons Misconduct, and third degree Assault.
According to Alaska State Troopers, just after 2 PM yesterday, officials responded to the intersection of Easy Street and Van Horn Road for a report of a motor vehicle accident and shots fired.
One witness revealed he had stopped to pick up a man standing at the entrance to the Lakeview Terrace trailer park when he spotted Cagwin's truck driving towards him.
The truck hit the man's car on the passenger side.
The witness stated that Cagwin then got out of the truck and started firing shots in their direction.
Cagwin and his passengers then fled on foot, leading officers to search the surrounding area.
Troopers say they located the two passengers at a shop near the scene, along with a .45 caliber handgun.
Troopers made contact with Cagwin.
They say he admitted to trying to scare one of the witnesses by accelerating towards him.
Cagwin also admitted to firing shots at the witness, two at his body and one at his head.
Court records show that Cagwin has prior felony convictions and is being held without bail.
