Juneau police arrest man for allegedly shooting vehicle on Egan Drive

Juneau Police arrested and charged 23-year-old Darshan Dogra with two counts of assault early Friday morning, after he allegedly shot a vehicle being towed in the Sunny Point area of Egan Drive.

According to a JPD release, the driver and a passenger in the tow truck reported the shooting at about 1:30 a.m. About an hour later officers located a Honda Civic matching a description of the suspect’s vehicle in the parking lot of the Extended Stay Hotel near the Juneau Airport. Dogra had checked in just minutes before police arrived.

The two witnesses to the shooting identified Dogra from a photo lineup. But when officers tried to contact him, he did not answer his door.

Several hotel rooms were evacuated as police tried to call Dogra on the phone. He finally exited his room and was taken into custody around 5:00 a.m.

Police say alcohol is believed to be a factor in the shooting.

Dogra was lodged at Lemon Creek Correctional Center, where he’s being held without bail.
