Man accused of warehouse shooting indicted for multiple murder charges
A 27-year-old Anchorage man who has claimed he feared for his life before shooting at two men, killing one, has been indicted for murder and attempted murder charges.
An Anchorage grand jury on Friday indicted Ian Anthony Bradford for the murder of Dylan Gregg and attempted murder of Shawn Poloa.
On Dec. 3, police say Bradford opened fire at Gregg and Poloa during an argument at a warehouse off East Hartzell Road. A criminal complaint filed earlier states investigators spoke with a witness to the shooting who told them that Bradford and the victims “got into a verbal altercation over some vehicle parts” just before Bradford shot them.
Bradford was one of several people initially detained at the warehouse, after being caught by a K-9 unit. According to a release from the district attorney's office, Bradford initially denied being involved and claimed to hear shots from inside the building while he was outside. He later admitted to shooting Poloa in the neck and shooting Gregg multiple times with .22-caliber handgun. The release states Bradford also admitted that Gregg moved to the bathroom and then he shot Gregg several more times. Witnesses told police that Bradford walked over to Poloa, stood over him, and shot him again.
The jury indicted Bradford on one count of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder, one count of first-degree attempted murder, and one count of first-degree assault, along with several weapons and evidence tampering charges.
If convicted, Bradford faces a sentence of up to 99 years in prison for each of the murder and attempted murder charges, up to 20 years for first-degree assault, up to 10 years for second-degree weapons misconduct, and up to 5 years for evidence tampering.
Bradford is currently in jail. A judge has set Bradford's bail in the case at $500,000 cash.
