ANCHORAGE -

An Anchorage jury convicted a man Wednesday on multiple assault charges in a Fairview shooting early last year, in which prosecutors say he fired a gun through an apartment door and a man's neck.

According to a statement from Deputy District Attorney Clint Campion, Elliott Hernandez's guilty verdict -- on one count each of first-degree assault, third-degree assault and third-degree misconduct involving a weapon -- comes after a week-long trial. Court records show that prosecutors dropped a second-degree murder charge in the Jan. 14, 2013 shooting.

In the statement, Campion says Hernandez, 30, had been at an acquaintance's Fairview apartment when he became upset and pulled out a gun.

"(Hernandez) pointed a 9-millimeter semi-automatic handgun at his acquaintance and threatened to shoot him," Campion wrote. "Hernandez then left the apartment and as he did so, another man slammed the apartment door. This further angered Hernandez, who then shot through the apartment door, striking the man in the neck."

While the wounded man was taken to the hospital, ultimately surviving his injuries, Anchorage police picked up Hernandez in a chase the next day -- as well as a 9-millimeter weapon he had dropped while trying to escape.

"The firearm was compared to a shell casing recovered from the scene of the shooting," Campion wrote. "Bob Shem, a forensic scientist at the Alaska State Crime Lab, determined that the casing recovered from the scene was fired by the firearm that was abandoned by Hernandez."

Hernandez, who had been on probation and parole at the time of the shooting, has been incarcerated since the incident. He faces a minimum sentence of 15 to 20 years, which will be determined by Anchorage Superior Court Judge Larry Card.
