ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Alaska judge has issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in a fatal Anchorage shooting at an east-side gas station.

Tierre Eady, 43, is wanted on warrants for counts of first- and second-degree murder in the death of Jerry Sales, 42, Anchorage police said Tuesday night.

Police shortly after 10 a.m. Monday received a call of shots fired at a Holiday gas station across the street from Mountain View Lions Community Park.
