Coast Guard: 2 dead in shootings at Alaska station

KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - U.S. Coast Guard officials say two Coast Guard members are dead in shootings at a communications station on an Alaska island.

Officials said Thursday it's unclear if the deaths at the Coast Guard Station on Kodiak Island are a double homicide or murder-suicide.

Capt. Jesse Moore says it is "possible that the suspect remains at large."

The Coast Guard station is about 250 miles southwest of Anchorage.
