Nathaniel Herz

Anchorage police say a man arrived at a local hospital with non life-threatening gunshot wounds following reports of a shooting in the Mountain View neighborhood on Thursday night, but the man wouldn’t give information about his injuries or how he was shot.

Police responded to a report of shots at the intersection of Peterkin Avenue and North Klevin Street just before 10 p.m. Thursday, but couldn’t find any suspects, according to a prepared statement issued by the Anchorage Police Department on Friday afternoon.

Police were told that the shooting involved two black males, wearing black pants or shorts with white t-shirts, who left the area “on foot” after the incident took place.

The police statement said “shortly thereafter,” police were notified that a man with gunshot wounds had appeared at a local hospital. Police did not identify the man, nor the hospital at which he appeared.

“The male was not cooperative in providing police with additional information on his wounds or how he was shot,” the police statement says.

Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call 786-8900.
