According to a July Kenai police press release, Ezekiel Johnston, 25, of Kenai allegedly shot Cole Sprinkle, 23, of Wasilla three times with a handgun on July 23 just after 6:30 p.m.

Johnston had called 911 and told dispatch he was being chased by someone, confirmed by law enforcement as Sprinkle, who was going to beat him up.

Shortly after Johnston’s report, police received calls about a shooting at Home Depot.

Police discovered Sprinkle had been an occupant in a Chevy pickup pursuing Johnston who was driving a Honda car.

The chase ended in the parking lot, and Sprinkle got out of the pickup and tried to get in the driver’s side of the Honda. Sprinkle smashed the driver’s side window with his fist after failing to get in the car. During the altercation, Johnston allegedly shot Sprinkle three times, according to the release.

Sprinkle was treated at Central Peninsula Hospital for his injuries.
