1 Killed, 4 Critically Injured In Anchorage Shooting


ANCHORAGE, ALASKA — A woman is dead and 4 others injured after police say a fight broke out during a large gathering sometime after 2 am local time.

McCoy says in the early morning hours a large group of people was gathered in the area. An altercation broke out between two groups of people in separate vehicles. That is when shots were fired. When officers arrived they found three adult male and two adult female victims.

It was not immediately clear if the victims were a part of the altercation or were bystanders.

A 21-year-old was taken into custody and is suspected to be the gunman, identified as Anthony Herring. He is facing charges of Murder I, two counts of Murder II, Misconduct Involving a Weapon I, Misconduct Involving a Weapon II, 4 counts of Attempted Murder and Tampering with Evidence.

I avoid large groups of people at 2 am, as I’m generally asleep at home or doing some late-night work. Bad things tend to happen in the middle of the night, and that’s why it’s best to avoid these situations altogether.
