Editor’s note: This story has been updated to clarify that a Kenai man was shot at with a rifle on Monday.
Update, 10:45 a.m.:
A Kenai man called the police himself after he was shot at on Monday, said Lt. Dave Ross with the Kenai Police Department.
His injuries were not life threatening, and he was not transported to a hospital by emergency response personnel, Ross said.
Masonn Bryd, 22, was arrested Monday following the incident.
“He was contacted by police in the area, not still at the scene,” Ross said.
Byrd falsely identified himself to police when they contacted him, but otherwise was taken into custody without further issues, Ross said.
A Kenai man has been arrested on several charges including attempted murder after police say he shot at a resident on Highland Ave.
Kenai Police responded to a residence on Highland Ave. in Kenai at about 11:29 p.m. Monday after getting a report that someone had been shot at, according to a Kenai Police Department press release. They found that Masonn Byrd, 22, had gone to an apartment building and confronted a person who lived there, who ended up with injuries after diving out of the way when Byrd shot a rifle at him.
“The resident opened his door and was confronted by Byrd, who took the rifle from behind his back and shot at him,” police wrote in the release.
Police have found “no apparent connection” between the two men, though they believe drugs and alcohol might have been factors in the incident, according to the release.
Byrd has been charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree assault, misconduct involving weapons in the second and third degree, first-degree burglary, reckless endangerment, and providing false information. He was arraigned at the Kenai Courthouse on Tuesday, and defense was appointed to him, according to CourtView.
