Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The names of two Alaska State Troopers involved in the shooting death of a woman at a residence in the Anchor Point area of the Kenai Peninsula last Wednesday afternoon have been released.
A dispatch from the Department of Public Safety reveals they are Trooper John King and Trooper Recruit Sarah Herrin.
King is assigned as a patrol trooper in Seward and is a six-year veteran.
Herrin is assigned to the post in Soldotna. She's been with the Troopers for nearly three months although she has seven years of experience as a law enforcement officer in Alaska.
The woman, identified as 32-year-old Mary Kate Field, was shot and killed by the Troopers after they say she produced a firearm and pointed it toward the Troopers.
The Alaska Bureau of Investigation is looking into the shooting with assistance from the Soldotna-based General Investigative Unit. At the conclusion of the investigation, it will be forwarded to the Office of Special Prosecutions for review.
