ANCHORAGE- Anchorage police have released the name of a man killed in a shooting at a local motel.

Police found 25-year-old Jose Cortez dead Sunday night at a Motel 6 in the city's midtown area.
Police say they were called to the scene by a motel employee who reported hearing a single gunshot from an upstairs room.
