ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Anchorage Police are investigating a shooting that happened between 3:00 and 4:00 Thursday afternoon on a trail near East High School, but they're not exactly sure where.
The victim, 27-year-old Jesse Kern, drove himself to a local hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg.
He said he had been stopped by a group of Asian males and one Samoan male who pulled a long gun out of a duffel bag and shot him.
Kern described the shooter as 6-feet tall, weighing more than 230 pounds and wearing a black puffy North Face jacket with a black hoodie underneath and black cargo pants. The other five males were described as Asian.
Around 7 p.m. police continued to search a bike trail near the high school, but couldn't figure out where the man was shot or even if his story was adding up.
