Fairbanks police arrest attempted murder suspect
An anonymous tip led to the arrest of a Fairbanks man wanted on attempted murder and assault charges, police say.
Bryon Kozevnikoff, 35, was arrested late Sunday evening after reportedly leaving an area business, according to the Fairbanks Police Department. He was taken into custody on a warrant for first-degree attempted murder, four counts of third-degree assault, third-degree weapons misconduct and second-degree theft. More charges are pending, police said Monday.
Kozevnikoff allegedly shot at a person inside a home on the 1000 block of 24th Avenue after an argument Sunday, Feb. 1. The bullet missed the intended victim, police earlier reported, but two people did sustain superficial injuries.
Considered “armed and dangerous” when a warrant was issued, Kozevnikoff did not have a firearm with him when he was taken into custody, police said.
Kozevnikoff was remanded to the Fairbanks Correctional Center.
