Alaska State Troopers

A man is dead following an officer-involved shooting Tuesday afternoon in Wasilla.

Alaska State Troopers identified the deceased as Matthew Fox, 40, of Wasilla.

“The man refused to comply with officers and actively resisted arrest. The man made threatening statements against officers on scene and reached for a firearm,” according to troopers. “Law enforcement personnel fired their services weapons, striking the man.”

Fox died at the scene, troopers said.
