FAIRBANKS - A home invasion in the North Pole area early Thursday morning left one man dead and another in jail, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Troopers received a call at 12:21 a.m. from a person reporting someone had broken into a home and shot a man. Troopers and personnel from the North Pole Fire Department responded and found John "Adam" Chilcote, 34, of North Pole, dead from gunshot wounds.
Troopers say Matthew Davis, 41, of North Pole, broke into the home, ran upstairs and shot Chilcote several times. The caller, whose identity has not been released by troopers, hid and called 911.
The home was located off of Plack Road, according to North Pole Fire Capt. Shawn McGilvary.
Davis left the home after the shooting and turned himself in to law enforcement less than half an hour after the shooting.
"He turned himself in at North Pole Police Department, where he was taken into custody without incident," Lt. Chad Rathbun said.
Davis has been charged with first-degree murder, according to troopers.
Chilcote's next of kin have been notified. His body will be sent to the state medical examiner for autopsy.
The investigation is ongoing.
