A shooting outside of a trailer off Muldoon Road left a man in critical condition Monday, Anchorage police say.
Just after 7 p.m., the Anchorage Police Department received a report of a disturbance between multiple people in the area of the 700 block of Muldoon Road.
“Shortly thereafter, we got reports of gunshots in the area,” said Sgt. Shaun Henry with APD. “Almost immediately after that, we got a report of a male victim who was struck by the gunfire.”
Multiple shots were fired during the dispute, police say, but it was initially unclear whether multiple guns were involved.
“There’s a lot of shell casings out in the street,” Henry said. “We’ve got, right now, the victim’s residence, and another trailer and another vehicle were also struck by gunfire.”
The victim, identified as a 39-year-old male, was taken to the hospital in critical condition to undergo emergency surgery.
No suspects have been taken into custody at this time, police say, adding that one potential suspect has been identified. Two vehicles believed to be involved in the shooting have been impounded.
Police are asking anyone with information to call APD at 786-8900.
