Soldotna shooting victim identified

The victim of a Monday morning shooting in Soldotna has been identified as 24 year-old Russell J. Camp, of Soldotna, according to an email from Alaska State Trooper Public Information Officer Megan Peters.

The Alaska State Troopers have not released the man’s condition.

The investigation of the circumstances surrounding the shooting is ongoing, under the authority of the Alaska Bureau of Investigation.

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.”
