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.
