ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Charging documents in a fatal Anchorage hotel shooting say the event occurred after a confrontation over a debt.
Anchorage television station KTVA reports 20-year-old Theandrea Luster is charged with first- and second-degree murder in the death Saturday of 40-year-old Javon Diggs, an employee of Barratt Inn.
Police reviewed hotel surveillance video and arrested Luster on Sunday. Online court documents do not list his attorney.
Luster told police he went to the hotel with his mother, sister and girlfriend to possibly stay there and his mother wanted to see Diggs because he owed her something.
