gif ad for must read alaska donations


On Friday afternoon, police received a tip that homicide and robbery suspect Aarron Settje was inside the Target store on West 100th Avenue.

Settje was wanted in connection with a homicide of 33-year-old Kortez Brown, who died of a bullet hole after being shot on Jan. 13. A warrant was issued for Settje’s arrest on Jan. 27.

Someone inside the Target recognized Settje from a Nixle alert and called 911. Police observed him walking out of the store and driving away in a black Saturn sedan. Officers stopped the vehicle in the area of C and Dimond and took Settje into custody.

Nixle alerts are email and text messages from local police and give information about everything from closed roads and accidents, to persons of interest.  Sign up for them here.

Detectives are still searching for Stephen Settje, who is wanted in connection with an armed robbery at Sportsman’s Warehouse. For details click here:
