Shotgun shooting leaves man wounded in Anchor Point

Alaska State Troopers are investigating a shooting on the Kenai Peninsula that left a man wounded.

Troopers at 4:20 a.m. Wednesday received a report of a man admitted to South Peninsula Hospital in Homer with gunshot wounds.

Investigators determined the man had been shot multiple times with a shotgun at a home in Anchor Point about 10 miles north of Homer.

Troopers describe the wounds as serious but not life-threatening.

Troopers took a 45-year-old Anchor Point man into custody. He’s being held on suspicion of felony assault.

Online court records Thursday did not indicate that charges had been filed.
