Police investigate early morning gunfire at Midtown bar

ANCHORAGE – The parking lot of a Midtown bar remained roped off Sunday morning following a shooting that sent two people to the hospital.

Police dispatchers said callers first reported gunfire at the Office Lounge around 2 a.m. A man and a woman were both taken to the hospital. Dispatchers said no details were immediately available concerning the circumstances surrounding the shooting, the victims’ identities or a possible suspect.

At 9:40 a.m. Sunday, detectives continued to search the scene, and evidence markers were placed around the back parking lot of the building on Northern Lights Boulevard. Jennifer Castro, a spokeswoman for the Anchorage Police Department, released a written statement asking anyone with information about the incident to call APD at 786-8900.

This marks the second shooting at the Office Lounge this year: In June, a man was hospitalized in critical condition following a fight between bar patrons.
