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.
