Anchorage police are asking the public for any additional information about the shooting early Sunday in the parking lot of a Midtown lounge.

Police said they received report of a shooting outside of the Office Lounge on East Northern Lights Boulevard just after 2 a.m. A male and female were shot and taken to the hospital, according to police. The male was in critical condition, but has since stabilized, said Jennifer Castro, police spokeswoman.

A surveillance video shows multiple vehicles dropping off and picking up people at the Office Lounge around the time of the shooting, police said.

"We know we haven't made contact will all of those people," Castro said.

The Office Lounge has offered a $10,000 reward for the arrest of the individual or individuals responsible for the shooting, according to a post Sunday on the lounge's Facebook page.

"This is something we as a community cannot keep tolerating," the post said.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or was in the area at the time of the shooting is encouraged to call APD at 786-8900 or, to remain anonymous, deliver tips via Crime Stoppers at 561-STOP.
