I have done quite a bit of dealing in that shop with the previous owners...

The murder at Aurora Paint is even closer to home, know the owner and his nephew very well. It is a stranger one and will not post what I know because it has not been released by the police. That is the one where the suspect was found near Cheney Lake and dove into the lake before surrendering. He dropped something in the lake according to the paper.

Man arrested after discovery of body in Anchorage business
pencil Author: Laurel Andrews clock Updated: 4 hours ago calendar Published 1 day ago

Update, 9:30 a.m. Sept. 12: Anchorage police early Tuesday identified Randall Igou, 27, as a person of interest in the discovery of a body in a Midtown business on Monday morning.

Igou faces multiple charges including vehicle theft. He is the suspect in the stolen vehicle investigation and is a person of interest in the death investigation, police said.

Police had no further information early Tuesday as they continue to investigate, said spokesman MJ Thim.

Original story: A man was taken into custody at Cheney Lake Park in connection with the discovery of a body in a Midtown business Monday morning, the Anchorage Police Department said.

On Monday morning at 8:50 a.m., an employee at Aurora Paint Co. arrived at work to find a man lying on the floor, said police spokesman MJ Thim. When officers arrived, they pronounced him dead at the scene. Thim would not confirm whether the death is being treated as a homicide and said investigators are still trying to determine how the victim died.

The company opens at 7:30 a.m., and Thim said the employee had arrived to find the lights on and doors unlocked. Thim said nobody else was believed to be in the building when the employee arrived.

Thim said police are still working to figure out the victim's identity and what connection he had to the business.


Around 10:20 a.m., police put out an alert asking for help in finding a 2006 white Kia Optima believed to have been at the business and which was being investigated as a stolen car.

At 11:46 a.m., police got a tip that the car was at the intersection of Muldoon Road and Island Drive in East Anchorage.

Once officers arrived, the man in the car "definitely knew we were there and took off," Thim said.

The man ditched the car at the 2400 block of Fox Hall Drive. He took off running toward Cheney Lake, Thim said.

"We followed the suspect on foot, got down to the edge of Cheney Lake and he kept going, went into the water, went in waist-deep, neck-deep," Thim said.

Anchorage resident Allen Gregory told Alaska Dispatch News that he was fishing at Cheney Lake when the man came walking out of the woods. As soon as the man saw police behind him, he began to run, Gregory said.


Gregory said the man jumped into the lake. Police had their guns drawn and ordered the man to get out.

"He had a bag, too, that he was carrying and he dropped that in the water," Gregory said.

Thinking that the man would need to be rescued, police called the Anchorage Fire Department. But by the time firefighters arrived, the man had been taken into custody.

The man was being questioned Monday afternoon, Thim said, and was considered a suspect in the stolen car investigation. He was considered a person of interest in the death investigation, and had not been arrested, Thim said.

Thim asked everyone to avoid Cheney Lake Park as they search for evidence. Police were also on scene at Fox Hall Drive, where the car was left behind, and at Aurora Paint Co., Thim said.

Thim thanked the caller who led police to the car they were seeking. "Had we not gotten that call … we would not have had this big break in the case."

Anyone with information, including surveillance video, is asked to call 911 or police dispatch at 907-786-8900.

So have I. The bearded guy who used to work the gun shop was a retired Kansas City Cop. Good folks. I would love to know if he is one of the victims.

Steve is the guy from Kansas City. Damned shame. He was a good man.

The previous owners of that shop and the Pawn shop lived in the apartment above the coin & gunshop. I hope it wasn't them, too. Of course, I wish that no one had died, but it gets personal to me.

Triple-murder suspect ‘started a fight’ with shop owner before shooting, police say

Anchorage police have arrested Anthony Michael Pisano in connection with Tuesday's triple homicide at The Bullion Brothers shop in Spenard.

"The preliminary investigation found the suspect started a fight with the owner for unknown reasons, pulled out a gun and shot the owner multiple times," police said Wednesday morning.

[3 men killed in shooting at business as Anchorage homicides continue at record pace]

Pisano, 43, then shot two other men before fleeing, police said. Pisano faces three counts of first-degree murder.

Police identified the victims as Steven Cook, 31, co-owner of The Bullion Brothers, Kenneth Hartman, 48, and Daniel McCreadie, 31.

Officers received a call about the shooting shortly before 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Upon arrival, they found a dead man lying in the doorway to the gold and silver shop. Two other victims of the shooting were found elsewhere in the building, one of them still alive, police said. The surviving victim was taken to a hospital but died there of his injuries.


As officers were headed to the Jewel Lake area to search for the suspect, Pisano called police to turn himself in, the statement said. Police said on Tuesday morning they took Pisano into custody near Dimond Boulevard and Minnesota Drive. Police were headed to the area after receiving a tip about Pisano and where he was headed.

A person named Anthony Michael Pisano, 43, is listed as the owner of H&G Tactical Solutions LLC, providing firearms instruction and tactical training at a private training complex in Anchorage, according to a search of public records. The business's Facebook page includes multiple photos of tactical weapons and people target training.

"Improving personal security and situational awareness in an ever changing world," the Facebook page says.

Pisano's LinkedIn page says he is a retired paratrooper from the U.S. Army.

People with information about the incident, including surveillance video, are being asked to call police dispatch at 907-786-8900. To remain anonymous, people can contact Crime Stoppers at 907-561-STOP or online at anchoragecrimestoppers.com.

Check back for updates on this developing story.


Correction: An earlier version of this story listed an incorrect age for Kenneth Hartman.

Not the same Steve... especially at 31 he is unlikely to be a retired cop from Kansas City... but records show him as a young guy here in town.

He was certainly old enough to be Steve's son. The Steve Cook I knew is about early-mid 60's.

Thanks, Art.
