If you haven't heard yet, a few days ago two Coasties were found dead on the Kodiak station. Released information indicates a double homicide. Of course, this is Unpossible, because military installations are magic gun-free zones.
The FBI says that they believe the shooter to still be alive and no suspects are in custody, but they also say that there is no risk to community members. I'm not sure how those two statements work together, unless they believe the shooter is off-island by now. Whatever the case is, hopefully they are able to find answers in this case. Meanwhile, we'll be a little more alert later this week when we're wandering around town.
We don't have anywhere near enough information at this point in time to speculate, but I wonder if this sad story might have had a different ending if we trusted our military members to carry firearms...
