Few Details Released On ComSta Kodiak Shootings

An FBI spokesman says there’s little new that can be released in the investigation of a double homicide at a Coast Guard air station on Kodiak Island.

Eric Gonzalez said Monday that agents are not releasing details because it could affect the integrity of the investigation.

The FBI is the lead agency in the shooting deaths of 41-year-old Petty Officer 1st Class James Hopkins and 51-year-old Richard Belisle.

Hopkins was an electronics technician from Vergennes, Vermont.

Belisle was a retired Coast Guard chief petty officer who worked at the base as a civilian employee.

Gonzales says he can’t comment on whether investigators have recovered a weapon or why law enforcement officials continue to say there is no direct threat to the community even though no suspect is in custody.
