Troopers: McCarthy locals disarm man who showed up at lodge with gun
When a 33-year-old man reportedly showed up in the isolated town of McCarthy with a gun threatening to kill the owner of the McCarthy Lodge on Saturday afternoon, neighbors jumped into the fray, subduing him until Alaska State Troopers arrived.
No one was hurt in the incident, troopers said in an online dispatch.
... “A number of community members, it kind of floored me, said ‘don’t come out of the house. Lock your doors,' " [Neil Darish, the lodge owner] said. “And they were standing in the street, trying to disarm him.”
One man even walked down to the river with Pratt, talking with him and trying to get him to drop the gun, Darish said.
Community members held the man until troopers arrived.
Alaska. Gotta love it!
