Thursday Mt. View shooting drug-related
Anchorage Police are investigating Mountain View's third shooting in less than a week.
At about 5:20 p.m. Thursday, Anchorage Police were called to the area of North Park Street and Peterkin Avenue on reports of a shooting. Witnesses on scene told investigators a man and woman were near a Chevy Tahoe at the intersection when a second man arrived on scene and shot the first man.
The suspect ran away.
The victim and the woman got into a red Chevy Monte Carlo and left the area. The Tahoe was left behind.
About 10 minutes later, a man suffering a gunshot wound to the lower body was dropped off at the hospital; APD says the driver of the vehicle left the scene.
APD found the parked and unoccupied Monte Carlo in the 4100 block of Thompson Avenue 25 minutes later. Both the Monte Carlo and Tahoe were impounded as evidence.
The latest shooting comes just three days after a candlelight vigil for 15-year-old Raynaldo Khotesouvan, who was shot and killed while walking home from a store in Mountain View shot and killed just a few blocks away. His loved ones have called for peace in the streets.
"I'm shocked. I feel worried. I feel sad for the family this just happened to," said Siou Khotesouvan, Raynaldo's mother. "I think that us as a community we need to come together. We need more patrol cars there in the areas there that are high in crime."
"Gunshots right outside my apartment building. Oh, my goodness. I kept away from the windows and the door," said Lorna Smith.
She lives just a few feet away from a blood trail observed at the scene.
Another woman who lives in Mountain View was angry about the shootings and blamed parents for what's going on.
"These kids-- their parents need their ass whooped is what I think. That's what I feel because they ain't no parents-- you let these little hoodlums run around here hurting other people, taking their lives. No, they need to start arresting some of these parents. Give them something to think about," said Pamela Williams.
The victim sustained non-life-threatening wounds, APD says.
Detectives determined the parties knew one another and say the shooting was drug-related.
Police urge anyone with information about the shooting to call 311.
