Anchorage police are investigating an early morning shooting near Dimond Blvd. and Arctic Blvd. that left one person hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

Dispatchers received word of a disturbance at a business near W. 64th St. and C St. just before 3 a.m. Friday morning, according to a release from the Anchorage Police Department.

Officers were informed that one person involved in the scuffle was carrying a handgun. The two groups arguing outside the establishment then left the scene in separate vehicles, the release states.

Shortly after, officers were sent to the area of W. Dimond Blvd. and King St. after receiving multiple reports of gunshots. Upon arriving, they found empty shell casings and broken glass in the area of Dimond Blvd. and Arctic Blvd.

According to APD, a man was admitted to a local hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his upper arm about 20 minutes later. A vehicle described to police at the scene of the original disturbance near 64th and C St. was also found at the hospital.


The shooting remains under investigation, and police ask anyone with additional information to contact APD at 786-8900 and press “0” to speak with a dispatcher. To provide an anonymous crime tip, contact Anchorage Crime Stoppers at 561-STOP or go online to
