1 person of interest located, 1 sought in Muldoon homicide
Anchorage police say they're now looking for only one person of interest in the shooting that left one man dead over the weekend in Muldoon.
Investigators believe Aarron Settje and Carlton Tarkington may have information of the events that led to the death of 33-year-old Kortez Brown, police say. Tarkington was located and arrested on outstanding warrants by APD's Investigative Support Unit Tuesday, with Settje still sought Wednesday.
Just before 10 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to the 8000 block of East 36th Avenue near the Tudor-Muldoon Road curve, according to APD spokeswoman Nora Morse.
“When they arrived on scene they found one adult male victim with a gunshot wound," Morse wrote. "He was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries."
Sunday afternoon, Brown's niece, Helen Jefferson, said she hopes police catch whoever did this to her uncle.
"He just, he didn't deserve for this to happen to him. He was such a great person," Jefferson said. "I just wish that whoever the person that did this to him, I hope they catch him because this is not okay. This is not okay."
Brown leaves behind five children. His death marks the second Anchorage homicide of 2018.
Settje and Tarkington have existing unrelated felony warrants:
- Settje -- theft in the second-degree and assault in the third-degree.
- Tarkington -- assault in the second-degree.
Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to contact APD at (907) 786-8900 or to stay anonymous call Crime Stoppers at (907) 561-STOP.
