Police get help with officer shooting investigation

Posted: Tuesday, January 12, 2010

ANCHORAGE - The Anchorage Police Department is getting help with its investigation into the shooting of a police officer.

Investigators are getting assistance from Alaska State Troopers, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Seattle Police Department and other agencies.

Police believe 47-year-old Jason Allen was shot early Saturday because he is a police officer. He was sitting in his parked patrol car in a residential neighborhood working on an unrelated case when a dark-colored car pulled up next to him.

Police say the passenger fired, striking Allen as many as five times in his arms and torso.

The officer was wearing a bulletproof vest. He is expected to recover.

No arrests have been made. Police are urging anyone with information to come forward.
