Coast Guard: 2 Dead In Shootings At Alaska Station

U.S. Coast Guard officials say two Coast Guard members are dead in shootings at a communications station on an Alaska island.

Officials said Thursday it's unclear if the deaths at the Coast Guard Station on Kodiak Island are a double homicide or murder-suicide.

Capt. Jesse Moore says it is "possible that the suspect remains at large."

The Guard says the identities of the victims would be released after family members were notified.

Officials say FBI agents from Anchorage are headed to the large island about 250 miles away.
