ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) - Two members of the U.S. Coast Guard were found shot to death on Thursday at an air base on Kodiak Island in Alaska, the Coast Guard said.
The two were found dead at a communications facility at the Coast Guard Base Support Unit Kodiak, and authorities were looking for a potential suspect who might be at large, according to a Coast Guard statement.
The circumstances of the shooting were not immediately clear, but the Coast Guard said the base, located about 250 miles southwest of Anchorage, was placed on "lockdown," as were nearby schools in the area.
