APD: ‘Heated’ argument ends in shooting, victim uncooperative with police
The Anchorage Police Department says the victim of a shooting Sunday afternoon has been uncooperative during their investigation.
The shooting was reported shortly after 1 p.m. on the 7200 block of Foxbridge Circle. Police located the victim, who “stated he did not know who shot him or why he had been shot,” according to a statement from police. He was suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his upper body, for which he was treated at a nearby hospital.
Witnesses in the area told police they heard the victim talking with another male when the discussion “got heated.” A gunshot was heard immediately after and a “skinny black male” was seen fleeing the area on foot, according to police. A black pickup truck was also seen leaving the area just after the shooting.
APD spokeswoman said because no one they’ve spoken to saw the shooting, it was unclear whether the pickup or the male running away are in fact related to the shooting. She said their investigation into the incident is ongoing.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact Anchorage police at 786-8900.
