Troopers say audio tape of Kaltag shooting backs up trooper's account

Posted: Thursday, June 13, 2002

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers say an audio tape of the shooting that left a Kaltag man dead backs up a trooper's account of the incident.

Trooper Dane Gilmore shot Kenneth Madros after Madros confronted Gilmore with a shotgun during a domestic violence dispute Monday.

Troopers said there were no witnesses to the shooting, which took place inside a shed. Investigators say an audiotape from a recorder Gilmore had in his pocket during the incident corroborates his account of the shooting.

Troopers were in Kaltag Thursday to answer questions and calm tensions stemming from the shooting. Capt. Greg Tanner said he called the village meeting to explain the troopers' inquiry into the shooting.

After the troopers' investigation is complete the state Department of Law will review its findings to determine if the shooting was justified.
