Todd Driskill Indicted for Attempted Murder

August 13, 2020

(Anchorage, AK) – On August 13, 2020, an Anchorage grand jury indicted 57-year-old Todd Driskill for a shooting that occurred in the 11200 block of Steeple Drive on July 30, 2020. The grand jury charged six counts of Attempted Murder in the First Degree, one count of Assault in the First Degree, six counts of Assault in the Third Degree, and two counts of Misconduct Involving Weapons in the Second Degree. The attempted murder counts reflect shots fired at four Anchorage Police Officers and two civilians.

If convicted at trial, Mr. Driskill faces a sentence of up to 99 years imprisonment on each count of attempted murder, a fine of $500,000, or both. The charges in the indictment are only allegations and are not evidence of guilt. Mr. Driskill is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the prosecution must prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Currently, Mr. Driskill is in the custody of the Department of Corrections. His bail has been set at $25,000 cash or corporate appearance and $15,000 cash performance. The State has filed a bail request to increase bail to $50,000 cash appearance and $100,000 cash performance. A bail hearing is to be set by the Alaska Court System. Mr. Driskill is scheduled to be arraigned before the Superior Court on August 17, 2020.
