Juneau police say the 33-year-old unnamed man was shot at a home in the 3000 block of Glacierwood Drive in the Mendenhall Valley.
Police responded to the home at 10:39 p.m. to find the man with a gunshot wound to his face. He apparently was shot with a handgun.
Capital City Fire and Rescue transported the shooting victim to Bartlett Regional Hospital. He was subsequently evacuated to the Seattle trauma center.
While police say alcohol was involved in the incident, circumstances of the shooting are still unclear.
