ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A dispute over a bicycle that led to a shooting has become an Anchorage homicide investigation.
Police say 48-year-old Ian Ellison was shot July 4 in the lower body at Arctic Benson Park as he argued and fought with another man over ownership of a bike. Police say alcohol likely was a factor.
Police at the time described Ellison’s injuries as minor.
Police announced Thursday that Ellison had died at the hospital where he was taken after the shooting.
A 50-year-old suspect in the case was arrested July 13. After treatment for a police dog bite on his arm, the man was held on suspicion of weapons misconduct, resisting arrest and a previous assault warrant.
Police say prosecutors are reviewing the case and may file new charges.
