ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Anchorage Police Department is getting help with its investigation into the shooting of a police officer.

Alaska State Troopers, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Seattle Police Department and other agencies are all pitching in.

Police believe 47-year-old Jason Allen was shot early Saturday because he is a police officer. He was sitting in his parked patrol car in a residential neighborhood working on an unrelated case when a dark-colored car pulled up next to him.

Police say the passenger fired, striking Allen as many as five times in his arms and torso.

The officer was wearing a bulletproof vest.

Dave Parker, a police spokesman, says Allen’s condition is improving in the hospital. He is communicating with family and friends and is expected to recover.

No arrests have been made. The Anchorage police union is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of suspects in the shooting.

The Anchorage Police Department Employees Association has established The Jason Allen Reward Fund through Key Bank to keep the award growing. The union also has set up The Jason Allen Family Support Fund through Key Bank to help the officer’s family with uncovered expenses connected to the shooting.
