Two Coast Guardsmen at the Kodiak Base Communications Station are confirmed dead after a shooting there Thursday morning.
Base Support Unit Captain Jesse Moore says the suspect in the shooting may still be at large, and he advises all Kodiak residents to keep an eye out for suspicious activity.
Moore says base personnel are deeply saddened by the loss of two shipmates.
State, local, and federal law enforcement authorities are working with the military police to investigate the shootings.
The names of the deceased have not been released pending notification of next of kin.
The base and Petersen Elementary School are on lock down until further notice.
