ANCHORAGE — Police believe alcohol was a factor in a shooting incident at a south Anchorage home early Wednesday.
Authorities say 23-year-old Chad Andrew Vansickle was arrested on assault and weapons misconduct charges. Police, in a statement, said they responded to a report of an accidental shooting. They say the male victim was taken to a hospital and was in serious but stable condition.
Police spokeswoman Jennifer Castro tells KTUU said it sounded like the victim and Vansickle “were playing with a gun and it discharged.”
