ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A teenager not in custody has been charged with manslaughter in a fatal Anchorage shooting.

Anchorage police say a warrant has been issued for the arrest of 18-year-old Deandrew Lee Jennings Walker-Webster II.

He is charged in the death of 17-year-old Xeryus Tate.

Police just after 2 a.m. Sunday responded to a shooting report near east Fourth Avenue and Newell Street.

They found Tate dead of a gunshot on the ground near his car.

A witness reported seeing the Honda driving. The car came to a stop and Tate, the driver, got out and collapsed.

The witness said two passengers stayed in the car and two ran away.

Investigators believe Webster was sitting in the back seat and recklessly caused the death of Tate.
