Juneau Police have made an arrest in last night’s shooting in the Mendenhall Valley.
Thirty-five year old Kenneth Edward Nalan of Juneau is accused of assault in the 2nd degree — a class B felony punishable by up to ten years in prison and a 100-thousand dollar fine.
The victim was identified as 33-year-old John Nicholas Duran. Police say he’s in stable condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Tuesday night police responded to a home in the 3000 block of Glacierwood Drive and found Duran with a gunshot wound to his face. He apparently was shot with a handgun. Police believe alcohol was a factor in the incident.
No other details have been released. The case is under investigation.
