Anchorage police say a second person of three shot in downtown Anchorage Monday afternoon has died.
APD officials say one of the initially injured victims, who suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital, died Monday night. The other injured victim sustained non-life threatening injuries and is receiving treatment.
At about 9 p.m. Monday, APD provided an updated description of a male suspect in the shooting.
"An original description of the suspect was a male, unknown race, approximately 5'8", medium build, wearing a black jacket with vertical stripes on the back last seen heading westbound on foot toward 6th Avenue/Karluk (Street)," police wrote. "A suspect description recently provided by the surviving victim describes the shooter as taller than 6', with black or brown shoulder length hair."
The shooting occurred just before 6 p.m. at the edge of downtown along Fifth Avenue near Karluk Street, just before the road branches out and becomes the Glenn Highway.
Police say the shooting occurred inside a tent in a wooded area just past a business parking lot.
Well-known buildings near the incident include the Lucky Wishbone restaurant and Karluk Manor.
The shooting suspect remained at-large at 7 p.m., when an array of officers were surveying the area: K9 units, SWAT, detectives and other officers were investigating.
