April 01, 2019 - 10:22 AM

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A 25-year-old man is in custody on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death of a man found at a busy Anchorage intersection.

Anchorage police say Martin Kignak was arrested Monday morning. Online court documents do not list his attorney or proceedings in the case.

Officers on routine patrol spotted a man assaulting a second man at Benson Boulevard and A Street.

Police found the victim dead in the street and detained Kignak for questioning.

Police closed Benson Boulevard between A Street and Denali Street as they investigated the death and reopened the street shortly after 7:30 a.m.

The name of the man who died has not been released because next of kin had not been notified.
