Criminal charges won't be filed in airport shootout

Posted: Friday, February 01, 2008

HOMER - Federal attorneys said on Thursday they will not file criminal charges against law enforcement officers involved in a fatal shootout nearly two years ago at the Homer airport.

The incident involved Jason Karlo Jacob Anderson of Duluth, Minn., who killed himself after badly injuring his 2-year-old son by shooting the child in the face. A 6-month-old girl also in the vehicle was not wounded.

Authorities were trying to serve a federal arrest warrant on Anderson, 31, when witnesses said he began firing from his vehicle.

Authorities said Anderson was hit nine times by bullets before shooting himself in the head during the March 2006 incident.
