Anchorage Triple Murder Suspect Arrested Tuesday After Sunday Shootout

By  | 

A triple homicide at an Alaska coin and precious metals shop began after the shooter started a fight with the owner, police said Wednesday.

43-year-old Anthony Pisano was charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 31-year-old Steven Cook, owner of The Bullion Brothers, and two other men Tuesday at the Anchorage shop.

Police say Pisano pulled out a gun and shot Cook multiple times and then killed 48-year-old Kenneth Hartman, and 31-year-old Daniel McCreadie.
The shooter was gone when police arrived.

Authorities say Pisano was arrested Tuesday after calling police and saying he wanted to turn himself in.

Online court records do not list Pisano's attorney.
His arraignment was scheduled this afternoon at the Anchorage jail.

Court records do not list any previous arrests for Pisano in Alaska.
