APD ID's officer in fatal shooting
Anchorage Police shot and killed an armed suspect late Wednesday night, in the city’s second fatal officer-involved shooting of the year.
Police identified the man killed as 56-year-old Charles McBride, saying in a brief statement Friday that his next of kin have been notified.
Early Sunday morning, APD identified the officer who fired the shots as Daniel Otte, who has been with the department three years.
Dispatchers originally received a shots-fired call from the 2000 block of Salmonberry Place off West 20th Avenue between A and C streets just after 11:20 p.m. Wednesday.
At a press conference Thursday morning, APD Deputy Chief Kenneth McCoy said McBride left his residence on foot, just a few doors down from the victim, and broke out a window on the victim's residence using a handgun. About an hour later, around 10:40, as is visible on surveillance video obtained by KTVA, the suspect returned and broke out more of the window.
About 11:18, the victim and a maintenance worker, were attending to the broken window when the suspect walked up and began firing in their direction, McCoy says. In the surveillance video, both the victim and maintenance worker fled inside the condominium and shut the door.
Anchorage Police were called to the scene and established a perimeter and teams began working to locate McBride.
At roughly 11:54, McBride emerged from the garage and fired his weapon "multiple times" at the officers near the victim's residence. One APD officer returned fire, with at least one shot striking him in the torso.
McBride was pronounced deceased on the scene.
The shooting will be reviewed by the state Office of Special Prosecutions.
No officers or civilians were injured in the incident.
On Nov. 15, three officers shot and killed Thomas Barclay outside the Fred Meyer store on Muldoon Road when Barclay, wanted on warrants, aimed a gun from his surrounded vehicle at APD officers.
