Man indicted for allegedly shooting two teens in downtown Anchorage
On Thursday, a 21-year-old man accused of shooting two teenagers in a downtown Anchorage residence was indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges, including attempted murder.
Beier faces two counts of first-degree attempted murder, four counts of first-degree assault and a single count each of tampering with physical evidence and failing to stop at the direction of a peace officer, according to a statement from Assistant District Attorney Christina Sherman.
Christian Beier was arrested Oct. 24 after an hours-long manhunt in the Mountain View area, after police determined he was the suspect in a shooting the night before that sent two teens to the hospital with serious injuries. Conor Lally, 17, and 19-year-old Caia Delavergne both survived the shooting.
The incident was first reported when Delavergne was found walking down N Street with a bloody towel clutched to her head. She directed police to a home on the same street, where police encountered Lally, who collapsed on the front porch with multiple gunshot wounds.
Delavergne told police Beier had been with the pair at the home earlier in the day, but was asked to leave. He came back later and reportedly shot Lally in the torso and the head, and then attacked Delavergne, who didn’t initially realize she’d been shot. She jumped out of a second-story window to escape.
If convicted, Beier faces up to 99 years in prison for the attempted murder charges, according to Sherman.
