Earlier story


ANCHORAGE – A Spenard-area shooting hospitalized two people Monday night, Anchorage police say.


The shooting was reported at 5:19 p.m., according to the Anchorage Police Department. The caller initially reported only one victim at an apartment complex on the 4300 block of Wisconsin Street, but when police arrived on scene, they found two male victims with gunshot wounds.


One of the victims was shot multiple times and both were transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition.


An adult male suspect has been taken into custody, according to police at the scene. Police said the victims and the shooter knew each other and the two victims reportedly confronted the suspect before the shooting.


Police said the shooting occurred outside the apartment complex, but residents of the apartment building have been asked to stay out of the building while police are investigating. An officer at the scene said access to the apartment building is blocked because they don’t want residents to walk through the crime scene. Police are hoping to let residents inside soon. In the meantime, many are sitting in their cars waiting.


This is a developing story, please check for details.
