Man arrested in shots fired investigation, Anchorage police say
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) -- Anchorage police have made an arrest after being called to the area of Dimond Boulevard and Noble Circle late Monday morning.
Officers with the Anchorage Police Department responded to the area just after 11 a.m. after receiving reports of a shot being fired.
Police say Casey D. Mayer, 28, had allegedly gotten into an altercation with at least one other person near Blackberry Street. At some point, police say he fired a handgun.
No one was injured, but police say Mayer left the area. He was eventually found near Noble Circle and attempted to run away from police.
Police say Mayer ran between two houses and hid near some trees and a sheet of plywood. When officers weren’t able to talk Mayer out, police say SWAT responded to the area.
Negotiators were able to get Mayer to give up and he was taken into custody around 2:47 p.m., according to police.
Detectives will interview Mayer before he is taken to the Anchorage jail on an existing felony parole violation warrant. Police say the warrant stems from original charges of third-degree misconduct involving a weapon and first-degree vehicle theft.
