Police: 6 hurt in shooting outside Alaska bar

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Police say six people were injured, one critically, in a shooting outside a bar in Alaska, and the suspects remain at large.

A group of family members and friends was outside the Kodiak Bar and Grill in Anchorage at 4:25 a.m. Sunday when one of the family members and the suspects began arguing. Moments later shots were fired.

Of the six shot, police said only 20-year-old Jonah Silva suffered a life-threatening wound, a gunshot to his abdomen.

The suspects were described as two men in their mid-20s. Detectives spent the morning interviewing victims and witnesses.

Police asked anyone with information about the identity of the suspects to call the department. A reward of up to $1,000 was being offered.

The other victims were identified as: Randi Popoalii, 33, shot in her foot; Willie Popoalli, 34, shot in his back; Dorothy Tialino, 20, shot in her shoulder; Tasi Silva, 21, shot in his waist and knee; and Derrick Parson, 21, shot in his forearm.
