Double shooting occurs in Unalaska

Posted: Friday, July 10, 2009

UNALASKA - Authorities say an Unalaska man died from a gunshot wound after apparently shooting another man in the head and chest.

Unalaska police Sgt. Matt Betzen says officers were sent to a clinic last week after 25-year-old Jason Tungul arrived with bullet wounds. Tungul told investigators he did not know the person who shot him, but then changed his story and said Daniel Cortez shot him a dispute over drugs.

When police went to arrest Cortez, they found him on the floor with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The Dutch Harbor Island Fisherman reported Thursday that the 25-year-old died after being flown to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage.

Tungul was also taken to the Anchorage hospital, but a spokeswoman says he is not currently a patient. There was no answer Thursday at a phone listed under Tungul's name.
