Marshall man accused of firing rifle at homes

A 26-year-old man is accused of firing a rifle at homes in the western Alaska village of Marshall and threatening to kill residents.

KTUU (http://is.gd/M68nQI ) says Kyle Myers was arrested Saturday and faces charges of assault, weapons misconduct and criminal mischief.

Alaska State Troopers were notified Saturday afternoon by a Marshall resident who said Myers was intoxicated and threatened to shoot his father. The initial report said Myers had a shotgun.

Troopers say Myers was still intoxicated when troopers from Aniak found him at a friend’s house.

According to troopers, Myers reportedly discharged a .308 caliber rifle at least five times near several homes and threatened to kill several people.

Troopers say Myers also broke a window at a nearby home, causing more than $500.00 in damage.
