2 Dead, 2 Wounded In Shooting Outside of Muldoon Bar
Anchorage police say multiple shots were fired in the parking lot of JJ's Lounge just after midnight.
Two people are dead and two others are wounded after a shooting happened just after midnight outside of a Muldoon bar.
Anchorage police say multiple shots were fired in the parking lot of JJ's Lounge located just off Sixth Avenue and Muldoon Road.
Officers found two dead male bodies—one on Muldoon Road and other in the JJ’s parking lot.
Another male and a female were found wounded and taken to hospitals.
For those who live in the surrounding area, the gunshots seemed like they were headed their way.
“It sounded like it was right in front of my house and I had my kids lay on the floor…to make sure the doors were locked, turn off the lights; it was pretty scary. The last shot was like ‘bam!’ and it sounded like someone murdered someone,” said one Muldoon-area resident.
Police are interviewing witnesses and searching for the suspect or suspects who remain at large. Additional police units as well as K-9s have been dispatched to the area.
“This area is probably going to be closed off for quite a while” as detectives continue to investigate the scene, said Anchorage police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker.
