(CNN) — Two Alaska state troopers have died in a confrontation on the dirt streets of an isolated Alaska village.
A spokeswoman for the police agency identified the slain men as Sgt. Patrick Johnson and Trooper Gabriel Rich.
They died Thursday in Tanana, a remote village in Alaska’s interior, 130 miles west of Fairbanks and 281 miles north of Anchorage.
Both had appeared on the National Geographic Channel program “Alaska State Troopers,” the channel said Friday.
They worked out of the agency’s Fairbanks rural service unit, according to the police agency.
Except to say that one person has been detained in the incident, officials have released few details about what happened.
