A man is under arrest after shooting at people in the middle Kuskokwim village of Crooked Creek, Wednesday.
Aniak-based Alaska State Troopers received a report that Moses Alfred John of Crooked Creek was shooting at people on the riverbank near a fish cutting area.
They say the 30-year-old shot his rifle from his boat towards three adults and three children.
Moses said he was attempting to kill one of the adults whom he had attempted to assault with knives earlier. Troopers say a knife pierced an item of clothing, but nobody was injured. Troopers say in their report Moses was intoxicated.
He was arrested and transported to Bethel where he was jailed without bail. He’s scheduled to be arraigned at 1:30 this afternoon. He’s charged with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct involving weapons.
