A Chitina man is charged with threatening to shoot people in a home filled with young children last weekend, Alaska State Troopers said Wednesday.
Troopers responded at about 4 p.m. Sunday to Chitina and arrested 29-year-old Dustin Slocum, according to an online dispatch. A report to troopers indicated Slocum was "at his residence and threatening people with a gun saying he was going to kill them."
"Investigation revealed (Slocum) was in the residence with five children ranging in age from 4 months old to 6 years old, and his significant other," troopers wrote.
Troopers persuaded Slocum to exit his home and surrender peacefully. A subsequent search of the residence found methamphetamines and marijuana.
Slocum was charged with three counts of third-degree assault in the incident. He remained in custody Thursday morning at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility, according to a statewide inmate database.
