ANCHORAGE (AP) Three teen-agers were shot and wounded in the leg during a shooting at a mobile home park in Midtown Anchorage on Saturday night.

Justin Sanders, 19, and two boys age 15 and 13 were wounded shortly before 8 p.m. at a trailer at 3007 Arctic Boulevard. All were taken to Alaska Regional Hospital.

The teens told police they were standing in front of a friend's trailer smoking cigarettes when a man on foot started shooting at them. The teens said they rushed back inside the trailer.

The man who fired the shots at the boys was described as black, 18 to 20 years old, 5 feet 11 inches tall and about 180 pounds.

The teens said they have no idea why the man shot at them, police said.
