ANCHORAGE — A man sought by federal and state law-enforcement officers was shot and killed at Delta Junction, Alaska State Troopers said.
Daniel Duane Jensen. Jr, 59, of Delta Junction, died in a shooting with officers Tuesday.
Members of the U.S. Marshals’ Fugitive Task Force, which included U.S. marshals, troopers and police officers from the Anchorage and North Pole police departments, were in Delta Junction to apprehend Jensen on a felony warrant for counts of sexual abuse of a minor.
A state trooper investigation led to the warrant, troopers said.
Troopers released minimal details on the shooting Tuesday but said it occurred as officers attempted to contact Jensen.
Officers from the North Pole Police Department and the troopers fired weapons. They will be identified three days after the shooting, troopers said.
Delta Junction, population 1,177, is at the crossroads of the Alaska and Richardson highways about 95 miles south of Fairbanks.
