Anchorage woman arrested in Anchor Point shooting

An Anchorage woman has been arrested for allegedly shooting a man in the Anchor Point area earlier this week, according to Alaska State Troopers.

The Soldotna dispatch office of the Alaska State Troopers were notified around 5:20 a.m. on Thursday that a man had been shot outside his home near Anchor Point, according to an online trooper dispatch report.

The man was treated for a non-life threatening injury to the leg from a single gunshot wound, according to the report.

Later that morning around 8:40 a.m., the Homer Police Department notified the Anchor Point trooper post that Homer officers had located a suspect in the shooting.

“After an investigation, Joyce Stanfill, 37, of Anchorage was arrested and charged,” troopers wrote in the dispatch.

Stanfill was charged with 17 different counts, including second and third-degree assault, being a felon in possession of a weapon, tampering with evidence and violating conditions of her release, according to online court documents.

She was arraigned in Homer Court on Friday morning, where court records show she was appointed an attorney to represent her. Stanfill’s next court date is scheduled for July 29 in the Homer Courthouse.

Second-degree assault is a Class B felony in Alaska, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $100,000. Third-degree assault and being a felon in possession of a firearm are Class C felonies, which are punishable by up to five years imprisonment and a fine of up to $50,000.
