Original Story:

A woman in Anchorage was shot repeatedly early Wednesday morning, and now police are asking for the public's help to uncover what happened.

According to a community alert sent by the Anchorage Police Department, at around 3:10 a.m. this morning, police took a report of a shooting on the 200 block of East 12 Avenue.

There, APD said a woman was found inside a home, shot multiple times in the lower body.

Though she had several bullet wounds, police say she is expected to survive the incident, which APD said is "possibly domestic related."

No information about the alleged shooter was released in Wednesday morning's crime alert.

APD is now turning to the public for help in this case, asking for anyone with information about this investigation, including surveillance video, to call APD Dispatch at 311 or Crime Stoppers at 907-561-STOP.
