Anchorage Man Indicted for South Anchorage Murder and Attempted Murder

December 7, 2018

(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) Today, an Anchorage grand jury indicted 27 year old Ian Anthony Bradford for the murder of Dylan Gregg and Attempted Murder of Shawn Poloa. Gregg was indicted on one count of Murder in the First Degree, two counts of Murder in the Second Degree, one count of Attempted Murder in the First Degree, one count of Assault in the First Degree, one count of Misconduct Involving Weapons in the Second Degree, one count of Misconduct Involving Weapons in the Third Degree, and one count of Tampering with Physical Evidence.

On December 3, 2018, officers were investigating a suspicious vehicle on East 82nd Avenue in South Anchorage. While on scene, officers heard “popping” sounds coming from the building and located a deceased individual later identified as Dylan Gregg. Further investigation revealed another serious injured individual later identified as Shawn Poloa. Bradford initially denied being involved and claimed to hear shots from inside the building while he was outside. Eventually he admitted to shooting Poloa in the neck, shooting Gregg multiple times with .22 caliber handgun. He also admitted that Gregg moved to the bathroom and Bradford shot him several more times. Witnesses stated Bradford then walked over to Poloa, stood over him, and shot him again in the neck.

If convicted at trial, Bradford faces a sentence of up to 99 years imprisonment for each of the murder and attempted murder charges, up to 20 year imprisonment for the first degree assault charge, up to 10 year imprisonment for the second degree misconduct involving weapons charge, and up to 5 years imprisonment for the tampering with evidence charge.  The charges in the indictment are only allegations and are not evidence of guilt. Defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the prosecution must prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.  Bradford is currently in the custody of the Department of Corrections.
