Kake man shoots up construction trailer with people inside
A Kake man is in custody after shooting up a trailer in Southeast, nearly hitting people inside, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Troopers say 46-year-old Jacob Jonah Hallingstad of Kake was driving around in a Chevrolet pickup truck when he shot several rounds from his .223 caliber rifle at a construction company trailer located in the Kake Tribal Trailer Court early Thursday morning.
A caller reported the shooting around 12:53 a.m. When State Troopers and Alaska Wildlife Troopers responded, they found the damaged trailer and arrested Hallingstad on multiple assault and weapons misconduct charges.
Further investigation shows, prior to the shooting, Hallingstad came into the trailer without permission and assaulted an adult male inside.
Hallingstad is being held at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center in Juneau. He faces charges of misconduct involving weapons in the first-degree, criminal mischief in the third-degree, six counts of assault in the third-degree and assault in the fourth-degree.
