Police seek Anchorage man in connection with 2015 shooting

The Anchorage Police Department is asking the public's help in locating Dominick Lozano, 30, who has been charged with manslaughter in the death of his friend last year.

According to police, on Nov. 23, 2015, Lozano and his friend, Radford Hepa, went to his former residence on the 4300 block of Wisconsin Street in Midtown Anchorage. He entered unlawfully, police say, to gather his personal belongings and confront Shannon Perkins, who was dating Lozano's ex-girlfriend.

Perkins, 29, was at the residence along with the girlfriend and Lozano's child, Anchorage Police Department spokesperson Anita Shell said.

Perkins had been assaulted by Lozano before, according to police. He was backed into the corner of a bedroom and forced to stay there.

"As the two men advanced on Perkins, he grabbed a gun and fired toward them, striking them both," police wrote in a release.

Both Lozano and Hepa were taken to a local hospital. Hepa succumbed to his injuries that night, Shell said. He was 29 years old.

Lozano is being charged with manslaughter in Hepa's death.


"His friend was killed in the process of committing the crime so he is liable, so he is charged with manslaughter," Shell said.

Lozano is also being charged with two counts of first degree burglary and one count of third degree assault.

Police have been unable to locate Lozano, Shell said. He is described by police as being 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 200 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

Police ask that anyone with information call Anchorage Police at 907-786-8900 or Crime Stoppers at 907-561-7867, or submit a tip online at Anchorage Crime Stoppers.
