A suspect has been arrested and charged in the shooting of Fairbanks Police Sgt. Allen Brandt early Sunday.

In a mid-afternoon news conference, Fairbanks police said they had arrested Anthony George Jenkins-Alexie about 10 a.m. today. Jenkins-Alexie was charged with assault and attempted first-degree murder of a police officer. He was remanded to Fairbanks Correctional Center this afternoon.

Jenkins-Alexie has a criminal history and has made previous threats to law enforcement, according to acting police chief Brad Johnson.

Johnson said the arrest came about during their investigation, helped in large part by tips from citizens. Alexie was arrested not far from where he left Brandt's police car Sunday, the downtown neighborhood around 8th Avenue and Clay Street. Johnson said the suspect was "out taking a walk" when he was arrested.

Just talking a walk..in the area you shot the officer at..not the smartest criminal I see. :P Luckily the officer is still alive and will recover

I also read Juneau has seen measurable snowfall before Fairbanks for the first time in over 70 years. Wow (it might snow on Thursday though). At least the wind stopped, that was crazy!
