UPDATE: Victim ID’d in Northeast Anchorage fatal shooting, neighbors tried to save him
An Anchorage woman says she and others tried to save a man — identified as 19-year-old Preston Junior Clark Perdomo — who was shot in his car Monday evening.
Around 6:30 p.m., residents in east Anchorage reported hearing multiple shots fired near the intersection of Creekside Center Drive and Muldoon Road. Several people found a man with multiple gunshot wounds in his car.
“All I know is I heard the shots, I ran for help. I tried to do what I can as an innocent bystander,” said Carlette Carney, one of the first people to get to the victim.
Carney says the 911 dispatcher told them to take the victim out of the car. When he stopped breathing, they began performing CPR until medical personnel arrived.
“Everybody was working together as a team and unfortunately there was nothing else we could do,” Carney said. “We’d exhausted everything and unfortunately a life was taken.”
The suspect fled on foot, according to witnesses. Anchorage police went door to door talking to potential witnesses but so far no arrests have been made.
