Suspect Logan Parrigin arrested; Officer Involved Shooting Investigation; Northway Mall
Dear Matt Tunseth,
Update on 2/6/20:
After being questioned by detectives, 31-year-old Logan P. Parrigin was remanded at the Anchorage Jail on the charges of Robbery I and Misconduct Involving a Weapon III.
Update on 2/5/20 at 6:30 PM:
Initial indications are that an adult male shoplifter was confronted by Carrs Security at the Northway Mall. Some type of altercation occurred between the suspect and security when the suspect produced a handgun. The suspect fled on foot.
When APD arrived on scene they saw a male matching the suspect’s description running eastbound outside the mall. When the officers confronted the suspect, who was attempting to enter the trampoline park, one APD officer fired a single shot. No one was injured.
The suspect was taken into custody and transported to the Anchorage Police Department where he is being questioned by detectives. Officers recovered a stolen weapon from the scene.
Detectives are asking for anyone who witnessed the incident, but have not yet spoken to police, to call Police Dispatch at 3-1-1 (option #1).
Per policy the state’s Office of Special Prosecutions (OSP) will review the officer’s use of force and determine whether or not it was justified. Once that has been completed, APD Internal Affairs will review the officer’s actions to confirm whether or not there was any violation of policy. As per APD practice the officer will be placed on four days of administrative leave. His/her name will be released publicly 72 hours after the incident.
Once OSP has completed their investigation, their findings will be available for the public to review.
