- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage police say a man died after a shooting outside a downtown nightclub. Shortly before police responded to Platinum Jaxx nightclub early Sunday morning, an officer found another man a few blocks away who was critically injured with penetrating wounds. Police say the man was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker says there is no indication the two incidents are related. The names of the two men, both in their mid-twenties, have not been released. Police arrived at Platinum Jaxx shortly before 3 a.m. after reports of a large disturbance and shots fired outside the club. Parker says police believe many people recorded the disturbance with their phones and are asking that they contact police.
