Kainoa Duarte-Borden was charged with first- and second-degree murder and was in custody at the Anchorage Correctional Complex.

Original:

A 26-year-old man who was shot early Saturday morning in northeast Anchorage later died from his injuries, and police on Sunday asked for the public’s help identifying someone they described as a suspect.

Officers responded to the 4600 block of Mountain View Drive around 2 a.m. Saturday for a report of a shooting, Anchorage police said in an alert. Emergency responders arriving at the scene found Christopher Shaw “outside on the ground with a gunshot wound to the upper chest,” police said.

Shaw was taken to the hospital and later died, according to police.

The Anchorage Police Department had sought the public’s help identifying two people they originally described as suspects who were believed to be armed and involved in the shooting. One was found and contacted by police Saturday, according to APD, but police are still trying to identify the second person whose photo they shared with the public.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether any arrests had been made in the homicide investigation as of Sunday. Police did not provide any other details about the circumstances of the shooting but said that “the investigation is ongoing and more information will be released as the investigation allows.”

Police asked anyone with information about the second individual or the investigation — including surveillance footage — to call 911, or contact Crime Stoppers at anchoragecrimestoppers.com or 907-561-STOP to remain anonymous.
