Suspect on skateboard sought in Midtown gunfire
Anchorage police are still on the lookout for a suspect in a shots-fired call who was last seen in Midtown.
Just after 9 p.m., police say they blocked the area of Fireweed Lane and 36th Avenue to C Street and Arctic Boulevard for about an hour to look for the reported shooter.
APD released a high-risk K-9 unit to track that person down but had no luck finding them.
According to police spokesman MJ Thim, the initial call came in at about 8:45 p.m. from the vicinity of West 32nd Avenue and Bering Street.
"Witnesses say they saw a suspicious person, possibly with a gun, in the area," Thim wrote. "He is described as an adult (Alaska) Native male with a red bandana around his face, wearing a grey jacket and military camouflage pants traveling on or with a skateboard."
Upon further investigation, Thim said, officers learned that nobody was injured with no damage to vehicles or buildings found.
"During this time, they determined no one witnessed a shooting; only heard shots," Thim wrote.
The roads were reopened to the public around 10:15 p.m. Thursday.
Anyone with information on the gunfire should call APD at 311.
