At least two people wounded in Anchorage shooting, police say

Two people were wounded in an early morning shooting Monday in Anchorage’s Abbott Loop neighborhood, police said.

Officers were called to the 9000 block of Brayton Drive at 2:26 a.m. after reports of multiple gunshots, police wrote in a statement. The initial investigation showed shots were fired into a home, police said.

Authorities were then notified that a person arrived at an Anchorage hospital with a life-threatening gunshot wound to the upper body. Another victim was reported at a separate hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the lower body, police said.

Both were believed to have been injured in the shooting, and police said they were brought to the hospitals in personal vehicles.

Limited information was provided about the shooting Monday morning, but police said the circumstances and motive were under investigation. No arrests were immediately made, but police said they did not believe there was a public safety threat.

Police asked anyone with information about or surveillance video of the shooting to call dispatch at 311 and press option 1 or submit information online.
