1 dead, 1 Injured in Ketchikan Shooting
One young man is dead and another injured following a double shooting in Ketchikan.
Police chief Ed Talik says the shooting occurred inside a home on Main Street at around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. He says when police arrived they found one man dead and the other suffering from a gunshot wound.
Talik says it appears that a 21-year-old man entered the home, shot the other man and then turned the gun on himself, killing himself.
The other man was taken to Ketchikan General Hospital and then flown to Seattle.
Talik says it looks like he will survive. Other people were sleeping in the house, but no one else was injured.
Talik says the two young men were friends. The motive for the shooting is unknown.
