Alaska State Troopers

Three men are in custody following the report of gunshots in the Wasilla area Thursday night.

Peter Williams, 32, Darin Smith, 26, and Andre Franklin, 41, were arrested and charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault, kidnapping, robbery and misconduct involving weapons. This followed a report of gunshots fired near Hollywood Road and Sylvan Lane. The Alaska State Troopers responded to the area about 9:30 p.m. Thursday and found three people injured, one with life threatening injuries. All three victims were transferred by ambulance to the Mat-Su Regional Medical Center. Troopers also received a report that three men had been seen walking from the scene holding what appeared to be weapons, according to troopers. Troopers made contact with Williams, Smith and Franklin while the three were walking on an ATV trail off West Hollywood Road and South Vale Avenue, which was close to the scene.

Troopers said this is an ongoing investigation. Continue to see for more.
