JPD responds to disturbance involving gun at Valley home; resolves peacefully

Police responded to a report that a man had “pulled a gun” on someone inside a residence in the 3600 block of Short Way in the Mendenhall Valley Tuesday night, but police say the incident resolved peacefully.


Multiple officers responded to the home near the intersection of Mendenhall Loop Road and Tongass Boulevard after the 911 call came in a little after 6 p.m.

Details were not immediately available, but Juneau Police Department Sgt. Chris Gifford said no one was injured in the incident.

No arrests were made either, he said, since officers received conflicting stories from witnesses at the scene.

“I don’t foresee any charges being filed either,” Gifford added.

Alcohol was involved, he said. He said more information will be made available Wednesday.
