A SWAT team and dozens of other law enforcement officers were locked in a standoff this morning with a man suspected of murdering two police officers in the town of Hoonah, Alaska.
They’re urging the area’s 800 residents to stay in their homes; several businesses have closed.
ANCHROAGE, Alaska —
The suspect in the shooting of two police officers in Hoonah Saturday night has surrendered Monday morning after a weekend standoff, according to village officials.
Troopers say 45-year-old John Marvin Jr. shot and killed 39-year-old Officer Matthew Tokuoka and 32-year-old Sgt. Anthony Wallace.
Officials say Marvin attacked the officers, then barricaded himself in his home.
Little information has been released about the suspect.
“The only information we have is that he's had problems with law enforcement in that community in the past, and there were some issues of stability,”

if you enjoy being shot at, i would suggest a career in law enforcement. it's hard to feel sorry for someone who knew the risks of the job when they took it. you don't see anyone crying when a lifeguard drowns or when a trucker crashes and dies a fiery death. just my 2 cents...
