An Anchor Point woman has been charged with attempted murder in connection with an exchange of gunfire with an Alaska wildlife trooper.
KTUU-TV says 58-year-old Tonee Walker also is facing charges of assault and reckless driving.
Walker was arrested following her release from the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage and taken to the Anchorage jail.
Alaska State Troopers say Walker was driving a yellow sport utility vehicle on the Sterling Highway near Happy Valley on Sunday evening when they received several reports that she was driving erratically.
When the trooper attempted to stop her vehicle, Walker allegedly stopped only briefly and then fired a pistol in what resulted in an exchange of gunfire in which she was shot in the torso.
