One person was shot inside a Spenard trailer early Saturday morning during what Anchorage police say appears to be drug-related altercation.

The victim’s injuries were non-life threatening.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting on the 900 block of Chugach Way, just off of Arctic, at around 12:30 am.

“Initial indications are that three masked adult males entered the home where two adult occupants were sleeping,” police wrote in a statement. “Some type of altercation ensued ending in one of the suspects shooting one of the occupants in the chest.”

APD says all three suspects had left the scene by the time officers arrived, and police don’t know if they left on foot or in a vehicle. It’s also unknown if the suspects took anything from the home before leaving.

Police could not immediately provide any further description of the suspects, but said the event appeared to be “drug-related and targeted.”

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 786-8900 or submit an anonymous tip through crimestoppers.
