A family is missing a loved one tonight, after a woman, whose name has not been released pending notification of next of kin, died from a gunshot wound on Thanksgiving Day in Anchorage.
Police said that a report of a gunshot at the 200 block of McCarrey Street came in at about 3:14 pm, and they responded, and found the woman with a bullet wound in her upper body. She died at the hospital, and police consider the case a homicide, although have made no arrests, nor released information about a suspect.
It’s the 28th known homicide in Anchorage in 2019, the same number of total homicides in Alaska’s largest city in 2018, with 32 days to go until the end of the year. Anchorage set a record for homicide in 2017, with 38 reported.
