Anchorage police say the dead man in a shooting on Sunday was 18, not a juvenile, as earlier reported. It also appears that the other person taken to the hospital was not the shooter, because detectives are still on the hunt.
Police say that their initial investigation has found that an altercation between a group of young people started in the sports fields near Sullivan Arena, and ended in the wooded area near the Chester Creek Trail along 20th and C Street. The suspect fled on foot after shooting the two victims multiple times.
The deceased teen’s identity has not been released, but detectives are aggressively working at identifying and locating the suspect. The shooting took place at about 6:20 pm on Sunday.
