Man wounded in gunfire outside Anchorage gas station

A man suffered life-threatening wounds early Thursday in a shooting at a gas station in Mountain View, Anchorage police said.

Officers were called to the Holiday gas station on Mountain View Drive around 1:40 a.m., police wrote in an online statement. Investigators believe there was “some kind of interaction between two adult males” near the gas station that led one of them to open fire, striking the other in the upper body.

The shooter fled the scene and police said no arrests had been made as of midmorning. Police said they believe the shooting was an isolated incident.

A spokesman for the department said no other information was available because the investigation is ongoing.

A 42-year-old man was fatally shot outside the same gas station in December. Officers arrested 43-year-old Tierre Eady more than a month after the killing of Jerry Sales.
