Teen shot himself in head, troopers say

Alaska State Troopers said an 18-year-old Fairbanks man is in critical condition after shooting himself in the head.

Spokeswoman Megan Peters said 18-year-old Nathan Fields is being treated at Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage.

Troopers said the shooting occurred Thursday at a business and they have yet to say whether it was an accident or intentional.

Peters declined to release more details, saying the investigation is not over.
