Brevig Mission Man Arrested After Shooting At House

State Troopers have arrested a man who was firing shots at a house in a Brevig Mission.  Nome Trooper Ann Sears says that 53-year-old Roy Henry of Brevig Mission fired three shots Wednesday night at around 10:30 into his neighbor’s home.

Sears says there were three adults and three kids inside the house at the time of the shooting, which lasted a half hour.  One adult in the house was nearly hit.

One bullet passed through two walls in the house and exited.   Another penetrated the door and became lodged in the wall.

Troopers in Nome were unable to respond Wednesday night due to ice fog.

Troopers flew in Thursday morning and arrested Henry.  The officers say alcohol was a factor.
