Shooting death updates


The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office has identified men who were killed in separate shooting incidents in rural Mohave County communities on Wednesday, April 15. Some additional details are provided in news releases issued Friday.

   The suspected burglar who was killed in Dolan Springs has been identified as Alan Marc Baker, 51. Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said Baker exited a home he had allegedly burgled when he fired his rifle at neighbors outside Wednesday afternoon.

   Mortensen said Baker was struck when the neighbors returned fire. Baker fled but was discovered dead in the nearby desert.

   The neighbor who was wounded in the gun battle was flown to a Las Vegas hospital for treatment of his injuries. The sheriff’s office said ongoing investigation may link Baker to other Dolan Springs area burglaries.

   The victim of Wednesday night violence in the town of Chloride has been identified as Robert Jacobsen, 63. Jacobsen had reportedly been drinking before he drove to a home in the 9700 block of N. Second St. and forced his way into the home.
   “An altercation ensued between this male subject and the homeowner, and involved both a knife and a gun,” Mortensen said. “The homeowner and the subject began fighting over the gun when two shots were fired, striking the subject in the chest and abdomen.”
   Jacobsen was dead at the scene. Both incidents remain under investigation.
