ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The latest on the death of the Juneau, Alaska, mayor (all times local):
Juneau police are waiting for autopsy results to determine the cause of death of newly elected mayor Stephen "Greg" Fisk but say he did not die of a gunshot wound.

In this case, Fisk suffered unspecified injuries but an obvious cause of death was not immediately apparent. She says police don't know whether Fisk died of a natural event or of unnatural causes.
