ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ' Officials say two Alaska State Troopers have been shot in a remote town north of the Arctic Circle and a standoff continued with an armed suspect.

Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says that one of the officers was seriously injured in the Sunday morning shooting in Kotzebue (KAHT'-seh-byoo), the regional hub for northwest Alaska villages.

The suspect remained holed up in his pickup truck late Sunday afternoon as authorities awaited the arrival of a trooper tactical team from Anchorage.

The seriously injured trooper has been flown to Anchorage for treatment. The second injured trooper received care at a local hospital.
