Police: 1 dead in shooting at Alaska hotel
Question of the Day
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A disgruntled former employee opened fire in an Anchorage hotel and killed a manager, setting off a four-hour search that ended with the gunman’s arrest, authorities said early Sunday.
Police locked down the hotel and carried out a room-to-room search. Police also surrounded the suspect’s residence.
Victor Rodriguez Flores, 45, was arrested nearly four hours after the shooting near his home, located in the hotel neighborhood.
Police Sgt. Joe Masten told the Associated Press that the shooter was a disgruntled former employee who had been fired. He said the female manager was shot in a hotel kitchen.
Police said Ms. Fadely had been the suspect’s supervisor until his dismissal a week ago.
Hotel guests were asked to remain in their quarters and were evacuated as police methodically searched the building, Lt. Parker said.
There were no reports of any other injuries.
