Three shot in Wasilla, and three arrested


Late Thursday night, Alaska State Troopers responded to a report of gunshots, with injuries in a neighborhood in Wasilla. The report said three men had walked away from the scene near Hollywood Road and Sylvan, holding what appeared to be weapons.

Troopers found three men on an ATV trail close to the incident and arrested Peter Anthony Williams, 32, Darin Jacobs Smith, 26, and Andre Miller Franklin, 41.

They are held at Mat-Su Pretrial Center on a no-bail status pending charges of Attempted Murder x 3, Assault One x 3, Kidnapping x 2, Robbery, Misconduct Involving a Weapon 2. All three have prior brushes with the law in Alaska.

Three injured people were transported to Mat-Su Regional Hospital. One person has life-threatening injuries.

Charging documents are still pending, but arraignment of the men began Dec. 6 and will continue on Monday at the Palmer Courthouse.


  1. Alaska must hold criminals fully accountable, it needs real judges who are not swayed by politics. And it needs a death penalty.

  2. Court processing was a debacle w/ one of the miscreants demonstrating a strong need for a lengthy prison term.
