ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Police have arrested a man for a shooting that took place Wednesday morning.
Ryan Angelo Malapit Sargento, 28, has been charged with first degree and second degree murder and tampering with physical evidence.
Anchorage police responded to a fatal shooting in a parking between two apartment complexes in Mountain View. The shooting took place around around 6:30 a.m.
"We found one person deceased, he is outdoors, he is not in an apartment," said Anchorage Police Lt. Dave Parker.
Police identified the man Wednesday as 30-year-old John Lee Taylor, of Anchorage.
Police say witnesses reported seeing a man wearing a camo jacket fleeing the area.
A K-9 unit that was on its way home after a shift diverted to the scene and was able to track a suspect matching the description down. The man, now identified as Sargento, was reportedly hiding in a shed a few blocks from the shooting and is now in custody, but has not been charged.
