The father of the 5-year-old Anchorage child who shot and killed himself with a gunTuesday morning has been arrested on federal charges in the wake of the shooting.

Anthony L. Johnnson, 30, was charged with being a felon in possession of a weapon in U.S. District Court, according to federal records. The charges follow the death of 5-year-old Christian Johnnson, after he shot himself with a handgun on the 5700 block of Rocky Mountain Court at about 12:30 a.m.

Police had said Tuesday that the weapon -- retrieved from a nightstand drawer before the shooting -- belonged to one of the child’s parents, who were in other parts of the home at the time.
