FAIRBANKS- Alaska State Troopers say a woman suffered a gunshot wound after a fight broke out at a party in Fairbanks.

Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says the woman, whose name has not been released, was not involved in the fight, and the wound is not considered life-threatening.

Ipsen says the fight started early Saturday at an outdoor area that is popular with young people who have bonfire-type parties.

Investigators have yet to charge anyone with the shooting. One man at the party - 22-year-old Aaron Hodges of Fort Wainwright - was charged with misdemeanor weapons misconduct.
