Update:

Alaska State Troopers have identified the victim of Monday’s shooting as Russell J. Camp, 24, of Soldotna. Troopers say investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting is still ongoing.

Central Peninsula Hospital experienced a brief lockdown in response to the shooting, said Marketing Manager Camille Sorensen. The hospital was locked down from 4:50-6:30 a.m. on Monday.

Sorensen said the lockdown was initiated to protect patients inside.

“It was called internally,” Sorensen said. “(It was) just basically until we knew things were kind of cleared.”


 

Original story: 

A man was injured after being shot multiple times in Soldotna early Monday, according to an Alaska State Trooper dispatch.

At about 2:30 a.m., troopers responded to an area near Big Eddy Road after a report of gunshots.

“When Troopers arrived on scene, they discovered an adult male in a vehicle suffering from multiple gunshot wounds,” the dispatch reads.

The man was transported by LifeMed to an Anchorage-area hospital, and troopers have not released his name. The man’s condition is unknown, according to the dispatch, and the case has been shifted to the Alaska Bureau of Investigation.

Representatives from the Alaska State Troopers did not respond for comment.
