- — Kevin Johnson

A U.S. Coast Guard communicat­ions station in Kodiak, Alaska, and local schools were locked down after two guard members were shot and killed, officials said. Guard Capt. Jesse Moore said it was “possible” that a suspect remains at large, but said murder-suicide had not been ruled out.

“We are deeply saddened that we lost two shipmates,” Moore said. He called it a “rare occurrence” and promised that authoritie­s would do “everything possible to ensure we find out exactly what happened.”
