Alakanuk man arrested in 'active shooter' situation, troopers say
An Alakanuk man who troopers say made his way into a home and began firing a semi-automatic rifle is in custody.
According to Alaska State Troopers online dispatch, 52-year-old Leroy Patrick was arrested on Saturday morning after AST got a call about an active shooter situation inside an Alakanuk home.
Troopers say Patrick fired multiple rounds through the front door while shouting at the family inside the residence, which also included an 18-month-old child.
"A male inside of the residence was struck by bullet fragments and received non-life threatening injuries," according to the online report. "The male victim was able to grab a shotgun and while on the floor, fired one round through the door striking Patrick in the leg which ended the assault."
Once troopers from Emmonak arrived, Patrick was arrested and taken to a nearby clinic to be treated for his injuries.
Alcohol was a factor, troopers say.
Patrick was charged with assault in the first-degree, assault in the second-degree, assault in the third-degree, burglary in the first-degree, misconduct involving weapons in the second degree and criminal mischief in the third-degree. His bail was set at $150,000.00.
