The Juneau Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating two Juneau residents who are persons of interest in connection to an early Wednesday morning drive-by shooting.
Lt. David Campbell said in a press release that an unknown person fired a single gunshot from a moving vehicle near Fourth Street at approximately 12:59 a.m. Wednesday. The bullet traveled through the front window of a house, through a lamp and lodged into a wall. No one was hurt by the gunshot.
The persons of interest police identified are Jose Antonio Delgado, 47, and Sky Linn Stubblefield, 25.
Campbell released the following description for Delgado and Stubblefield: Delgado is a Hispanic male, 5’10” tall, weighs approximately 200 pounds, has a shaved head and brown eyes. Stubblefield is a white female, 5’5” tall, weighs approximately 130 pounds, has light brown hair and hazel eyes.
Campbell told the Empire by phone Wednesday that a JPD investigation revealed a group of people were in front of a residence in the 400 block of Harris street and two of them were arguing over an unknown piece of property. One of the arguing parties left, got in a car with another person and fired a gun at the residence as they drove off.
Campbell said that an officer was already in the general vicinity for a reported trespassing call. After getting out of his car and walking to a residence, the officer heard the gun shot and saw a grey car speed off.
The officer on foot alerted a second officer who was driving to the area to offer assistance that a possible drive-by shooter was going to pass him by.
Campbell said less than 30 seconds later, the second officer saw the car travel up Seward Street in the wrong direction. The occupants then parked near Fifth and Main streets and fled the area.
Police are asking anyone who knows the whereabouts of either Delgado or Stubblefield, or see them in public, to contact JPD immediately at 586-0600.
JPD is warning the public to consider Delgado and Stubblefield as possibly armed and to not contact either of them directly.
The investigation is ongoing.
Drive-by shootings are relatively rare in Juneau, but they do happen.
“Fortunately, they are fairly infrequent,” Campbell said.
The last reported drive-by shooting was in August 2015 and only harmed a teddy bear near Point Lena Road. There were at least two reported drive-by shootings in 2013, both of which took place on Egan Drive and neither of which resulted in physical injuries. Police said one of those was related to a drug case, and the other involved a National Guard veteran possibly with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder who was later sentenced to a year in prison for the incident.
