Arrest made in deadly Midtown shooting

By KTVA CBS 11 News 8:58 AM December 7, 2013

Investigators believe alcohol is a factor in the shooting.

Update, Saturday 10 p.m.

Tamborrino was Degenstein’s boyfriend, and a neighbor told police the two had been arguing earlier in the week after Degenstein found out Tamborrino was seeing other women.

Both had been drinking and playing with guns at his apartment when she shot him. When police arrived they found two handguns on a coffee table. Tamborrino was sitting on the couch, bleeding, but was breathing.

When police removed Degenstein from the apartment, she said something to the effect of: “I can’t believe I did this,” according to charging documents.

Officers noted that she smelled strongly of alcohol and had what appeared to be blood on her pants, sandals and foot, the charging documents said.

Tamborrino was rushed by medics to the hospital where he later died, according to police.

If convicted, Degenstein could face up to 99 years in prison.

Update, Saturday 3:30 p.m.

Anchorage police have identified the victim as 24-year-old Ryan Tamborrino.

Original story:

ANCHORAGE- Anchorage police arrested and charged 27-year-old Bonnie Degenstein with murdering an adult male inside a Midtown home late Friday night.

Degenstein told 911 dispatchers she and the victim were playing with a gun when she accidentally shot him, according to police.

Investigators believe alcohol is a factor in the shooting.
