HOMER, Alaska -- A man sought by U.S. Marshals was shot and killed in a shootout with law enforcement officers Wednesday before dusk at the Homer airport. A toddler in the man's Jeep was wounded by gunfire during the shootout, according to witnesses. An infant who was also in the Jeep was uninjured.

Homer police released no details early Wednesday evening on the shooting, which occurred just after 6 p.m. A rental car agent, who rented the Jeep to the man and helped lure him to the airport trap, identified the name on man's credit card and driver's license as Brandon Dietzman of Anchorage.

Federal marshals and Homer police were involved in the shootout, which took place yards away from an air terminal packed with Homer High School choir members and parents preparing to leave on a trip to Italy.
