ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Police report that 30-year-old Christopher Homan has turned himself in to police.

Homan was wanted by police following a disturbance involving a gun on Tuesday night.

According to an updated community alert, Homan turned himself in and was taken to Anchorage Correctional Complex. Police obtained a felony arrest warrant for Homan Wednesday morning, who they say fled after discharging a weapon inside a home near the intersection of East 20th Avenue and Karluk Street in the Rogers Park neighborhood.

Police say they responded to a report just before 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and surrounded the home with officers and a Crisis Negotiation Team, shutting down the intersection in the process, but later discovered that Homan was not home.

A young child was in the home at the time of the incident, in which police say Homan got into an argument with an adult female family member while intoxicated and fired the gun, leaving the family member in fear. Police say the woman left the home but the small child remained inside.

Police say once they contacted Homan via video phone call and determined he was not in the area, they entered the house and found the child safe.

A felony arrest warrant was obtained for Homan for third-degree assault, second-degree misconduct involving a weapon, and two counts of fourth-degree misconduct involving a weapon, police said.
