ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - One man is dead and another is in the hospital with “what are believed to be” life-threatening injuries after an early-morning shooting Saturday in downtown Anchorage.

Police responded to reports of shots fired around 3:15 a.m. in a parking lot on West Third Avenue between G and H streets, according to the Anchorage Police Department.

The department identified the victim Monday as 21-year-old Louis Talo after contacting the family.

The police say no arrests have been made. Police also say they are interviewing multiple people.

This is the second deadly incident in the last two months on the same block.

Police are investigating Smith’s death as a homicide.
