ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Anchorage police arrested a 29-year-old man for allegedly shooting his cousin in the foot with a shotgun Tuesday morning.
Police say the shooting happened just after 9 a.m. at space 22A of the Glenn-Muldoon Trailer Park. After searching for more than an hour for Chase Brewer, who fled after the incident, officers located him in a nearby trailer on the 7500 block of Boundary Avenue.
According to APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker, Brewer was taken into custody at 11:00 a.m.
"He actually came back to the mobile home park and was taken into custody there," Parker said. "That once again kind of points out the futility of running: in Anchorage, we only have two roads out of town, and we only have one airport -- and where are you gonna go?"
Brewer was charged with first-degree assault, tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment.
During the search, nearby Bartlett High School went into lockdown mode. Principal Dan Gallego says it was the first lockdown in about three years.
