APD: Suspect wanted for alleged involvement in shooting
Last updated at 5:15 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 6
The Anchorage Police Department says it is investigating a shooting that occurred in West Anchorage Saturday morning. Officers are also asking for the public’s help in locating a man allegedly involved in the shooting.
In an email on Monday, APD spokeswoman Renee Oistad said the shooting took place in the area of West 64th Avenue and Bridget Circle around 9:45 a.m. She identified the suspects as 27-year-old Jeramie Ghrames, who was driving a blue truck, and 29-year-old Travis H. Hardon and 26-year-old Timothy Z. Paty, who were both occupants of a GMC SUV, along with an unnamed female.
“Initial indications are that Ghrames and the female know one another,” Oistad said. “Ghrames and one of the occupants of the GMC fired shots at each other. Ghrames rammed the GMC with the truck and then drove away.”
Oistad said that the female in the GMC stayed at the scene, but Hardon and Paty left the area on foot. The two men were later located, and both were taken into custody.
Oistad said Paty originally gave a false name, but once his identity was confirmed, he was jailed for providing false information and an unrelated warrant.
Police charged Hardon, a convicted felon, with second- and third-degree misconduct involving a weapon, second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance and two counts of second-degree theft for drugs and stolen firearms he had when he was arrested, according to Oistad.
Ghrames was driving a 1990s model baby blue pickup truck with rear bumper damage and a broken rear window, according to police. Oistad said it was later found abandoned.
Ghrames is on probation for robbery, according to police, and now faces additional charges, including two counts of third-degree assault and a single count of third-degree misconduct involving a weapon.
“If seen, please do not contact him yourself,” police wrote.
Ghrames is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs roughly 150 pounds.
Anyone with information on Ghrames’ whereabouts or the shooting is asked to call police at 907-786-8900.
