AK - Brian Sullivan, 48, Barrow ADA, shot to death, 8 Dec 2014
An Alaska assistant district attorney who once was a Washington state lawmaker was shot and killed in the Arctic community of Barrow, according to officials with the North Slope Borough.
Brian Sullivan, a 48-year-old Barrow resident, was killed Monday, according to a press release sent out by borough Mayor Charlotte Brower. Police had responded to a reported shooting at 5318 Laura Madison St. at roughly 10 p.m., which resulted in Sullivanís death, the release said.
Fischer was in a jealous rage when he barged into the house of his former girlfriend and opened fire on Sullivan, who was sitting in the living room, court documents say.
Sullivan had been dating Mabel Kaleak for just a few weeks, police said. Kaleak had a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, who was stalking her and had a history of violence against her and her family, authorities said.
"Police believe that Fischer shot Sullivan twice in the face with a 20-gauge shotgun from a distance estimated at 10 feet (or less), as Sullivan was sitting on a couch," wrote North Slope Police Lt. Travis Welch in a crime report. "In other words, Fischer shot a man who was seated, unarmed, and posed no threat," he added.

A man accused of shooting an Alaska prosecutor in a jealous rage over a woman was indicted on murder charges by a grand jury.
Ronald Fischer, 47, was charged Thursday with first- and second- degree murder in the Dec. 8 shotgun death of Brian Sullivan, an assistant district attorney in Barrow, the country’s northernmost community... The indictment also charges Fischer with assault by placing the woman in fear with a shotgun.
The indictment was handed up in Nome because Sullivan had been presenting cases to a grand jury in Barrow. Fischer is expected to be arraigned on Monday.
