Juneau Police have identified the gunman in Friday night’s shooting-suicide at a mobile home in the 9000 block of Stephen Richards Memorial Drive.
According to police, 42-year-old Bradley James Mauch of Juneau apparently shot a woman inside the home, then killed himself.
When police arrived at the scene, they found a 42-year-old female with a gunshot wound to the abdomen, and Mauch with a gunshot wound to his head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital, and has since been released.
Police are still investigating the incident, and have asked the state medical examiner’s office in Anchorage to conduct an autopsy on Mauch.
