ANCHORAGE - One man was killed and another wounded during an early Monday robbery at a downtown Anchorage hotel, police said.

Officers arrived at the low-budget Inlet Inn just after 2:30 a.m. and found the two gunshot victims. One was an employee, the other was his friend.

Lt. Dave Parker, Anchorage police spokesman, said the employee survived wounds to a "fleshy part of the torso," but his friend died in surgery at a hospital. Neither man's name has been released.

According to witnesses, a man wearing a blue bandanna robbed the front desk employee and then shot him. He then shot the other man, who was in the hotel's lobby.

The shooter took off on foot and police are still looking for him.

Investigators have been able to speak with the employee, Parker said. He declined to say how many times the men were shot or how much money was stolen.
