A man previously identified as a “person of interest” in the fatal shooting of a 34-year-old man at the Black Angus Inn in early December is now a murder suspect, police say.

Brant Marshall, 39, is accused of shooting Grant Fowler the afternoon of Dec. 3, according to an online update posted by the Anchorage Police Department late Thursday.

Fowler was found shot in the upper body inside the inn on Gambell Street. He died soon after arriving at the hospital that day.

Police originally described Marshall as a person of interest in the case. It wasn’t immediately clear what information caused detectives to determine that he was the suspect, but the change came after another person of interest, 40-year-old Brittney Johnson, was located Thursday.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Marshall on charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter.

Anyone with information about Marshall or where he is can call police dispatch at 3-1-1 (option #1). To remain anonymous, contact Anchorage Crime Stoppers at 561-STOP.
