ANCHORAGE - North Slope Borough police say a man killed his teenage girlfriend before turning the gun on himself.
Lt. Jeffrey Brown says 19-year-old Fredrick Igtanloc confronted his 16-year-old girlfriend as she walked along a Barrow street with two other people early Saturday. He says Igtanloc shot her in the head and chest with a 9 mm pistol before shooting himself.
Both teens were taken to the Barrow hospital, where Igtanloc died. The girl was transported to an Anchorage hospital where she died Sunday. The girl is not being named pending an autopsy.
An autopsy also will be performed on Igtanloc's body.
Police suspect alcohol was involved. Brown said the two witnesses were intoxicated at the time of the shooting and have not been cooperative.
The investigation is continuing.
