ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Anchorage police are seeking two specific witnesses of a fatal Sunday shooting at a Downtown nightclub as their investigation into the incident continues.
APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker says detectives are trying to identify a pair of revelers who attended a Halloween party at Platinum Jaxx, at 901 W. 6th Ave. The two were wearing Iron Man and Incredible Hulk costumes early Sunday morning, when 27-year-old Said Beshirov was shot and killed.
Police had initially sought two vehicles spotted in the area, including a red Dodge pickup truck and a white Jeep Grand Cherokee now believed to be from model years 2002 through 2005.
“The press was able to assist in the identification of the red Dodge truck that contained witnesses to the event,” Parker wrote in a Thursday statement on the case. “Detectives are still seeking the white Jeep.”
Parker says that while images taken Sunday were fairly blurry, detectives have identified many of the people who were at the scene.
