Posted: April 13, 2012 - 2:16pm

Officials on Friday identified the two Coast Guardsmen who were shot and killed Thursday at Coast Guard Communication Station Kodiak.

A Coast Guard press release states they are Coast Guard Petty Officer First Class James Hopkins, an electronics technician, and Richard Belisle, a civilian employee and retired Coast Guard chief petty officer.

Their deaths are being investigated by the Coast Guard Investigative Service, the FBI, Alaska State Troopers and the Kodiak Police Departments.

The investigation is treating the fatal shootings as a double homicide. There has not been any evidence to suggest it was a homicide-suicide, the release states.

No arrests have been made in the case.
