ANCHORAGE — Alaska State Troopers arrested a man Monday after he barricaded himself inside a home for hours in a tiny northwest Alaska village where one person was found dead outside the residence.
The man was apprehended about 2:30 p.m. in Selawik. Troopers flew to the village earlier in the day after receiving a report shortly after 4:30 a.m. that a man was shooting a firearm in the village.
No other details were immediately released. Troopers said they were working to positively identify the person who died, as well as the man arrested.
