A man who police were looking for in connection to a January homicide in East Anchorage has been arrested, police said.

Aarron Settje, 32, was arrested on outstanding homicide and robbery warrants after tipsters told police they spotted Settje in the Target on West 100th Avenue, according to police.

Settje was a "person of interest" in the Jan. 13 homicide of 33-year-old Kortez Brown in East Anchorage. Brown had been found with a gunshot wound on the 8000 block of 36th Avenue.

In early February, police said Settje shoplifted from the Sportsman's Warehouse on Old Seward Highway. Police are still searching for Stephen Settje, another person wanted in that robbery investigation.

Another person police had been looking for in connection with Brown's killing was arrested in January.
