APD arrests teen in July drive-by shooting
One of two suspects has been arrested in connection to a July drive-by shooting in South Anchorage that left a woman wounded.
Isaac Mcleod, 19, was arrested Thursday afternoon on the 5300 block of Mockingbird Drive, according to an APD statement. He was held at the Anchorage jail on charges of first-degree assault, evidence tampering and multiple counts of weapons misconduct. The driver in the shooting remains at large.
The shooting dates back to shortly after midnight on July 2, when a woman driving a Chevrolet Tahoe SUV was stopped at a light heading west on Dimond Boulevard at Minnesota Drive. Police say a white Kia Optima sedan pulled up next to her and the occupants opened fire. The woman received multiple gunshot wounds that were not life-threatening.
The Optima was impounded later that month, but no arrests were immediately made in the case. Police said at the time that the victim’s Tahoe had been targeted based on its make and model, but the woman was not the intended victim of the shooting.
APD spokeswoman Kendra Doshier declined Friday to provide a description of the driver still sought or discuss what led to the shooting.
Anyone with information on the Kia’s driver is asked to call APD at 311.
