A 30-year-old civilian was shot and killed after brandishing a knife at a duty officer after attempting to enter a building on an Alaska military base used by Navy SEALs for cold weather training.
A man of Kodiak died in the shooting late Saturday at the Naval Special Warfare Detachment Kodiak on Kodiak Island, Navy Criminal Investigative Service spokesperson Jeff Houston said.
Alaska State Troopers said a guard saw the man trespassing at the compound and tapping on the windows of a watch building with a knife.
It was then the man walked toward the guard with the knife and failed to obey the guard's repeated commands to stop. The duty officer shot the man, who was declared dead by responding medics.
