A man is dead in Scammon Bay after his brother shot him on the night of Oct. 20. He died in the early morning the next day. Village police officers currently have his brother in custody.

Alaska State Troopers received a call about the shooting on Oct. 20, but bad weather prevented both them and a medevac from flying out. The names of the brothers have not been released, and Scammon Bay City Manager Larson Hunter told KYUK that he did not have enough information to comment. 

The troopers' report says that an assistant district attorney will fly out with the troopers for further investigation when the weather improves.
