Anchorage Police are responding to a shooting in front of the Black Angus Inn in Fairview. A police spokesperson said one victim has been taken to the hospital with at least one gunshot wound to the lower body.

The shooting was reported at 4:20 p.m.

Police say a vehicle driven by a man pulled up in front of the hotel in a vehicle. A man walked up to the vehicle and spoke to the driver, who then got out of the vehicle. The two got into "some type of altercation," police wrote in a Nixle alert, and the driver shot the victim, got into his vehicle and drove away.

No one has yet been arrested, and police say it did not appear to be a random event.

The victim's condition is not known at this time.
