Police investigate reports of shots fired near workers

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Police are monitoring a south Anchorage home where workers trimming trees for a utility reported shots were fired.

    Police spokeswoman Anita Shell says a man stepped out of a house Wednesday morning, told the workers to get off his property and fired shots.

    The workers called 911.

    She says the workers were in a public right of way and not on the man's property.

    Police by 3:30 p.m. had been at the home for five hours but had not been able to contact the man, who does not have a phone.

    Shell says he may be barricaded inside.
