Juneau Police say no one was hurt after reports of a gunshot in Switzer Village Trailer Park on Tuesday evening.
Sgt. Chris Burke said in a prepared statement that one of three people at a trailer apparently was upset about someone spending the night and made comments of a suicidal nature. When the man was alone in the trailer, he fired a rifle with one shot into the ceiling.
Samuel St. Clair, 36, was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and misconduct involving a weapon. He was held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center and held without bail.
