Police have arrested an Unalaska man and confiscated several firearms from his home in the community's second recent incident involving threats of gun violence.

The Department of Public Safety took James Greene, 26, into custody Monday — the same day he allegedly threatened to harm at least two people during a domestic situation that spilled into public spaces.

The state has filed charges against two Unalaska teenagers who allegedly threatened another teen with a handgun this July.

That's likely all the information Unalaskans will get about the case — unless it moves to the adult court system.

The rest of the details remain confidential under Alaska law.

Authorities are deciding whether to file charges against two Unalaska teenagers who allegedly used a handgun to threaten another teen in July.  

The incident was first reported to adults on Thursday.

While a press release from the Department of Public Safety described it as "disturbing," Acting Director Jennifer Shockley has declined to share specifics.

She did say that no one was physically injured and there are no threats against local schools.

After ducking jail time for a decade, a Texas man was finally taken into custody last week on an outstanding Unalaska warrant.  

David Barczi was sentenced to 70 days in prison in 2008 after he was found guilty of assaulting a law enforcement officer.

An Illinois man hired as Unalaska's fire chief last year has been sentenced to 36 years in prison.

David "D.J." Dunn was convicted of drugging and raping a subordinate at his going-away party last spring — days before he was scheduled to leave his job as a Savoy, Illinois first responder and move to the island.

City officials fired the 44-year-old after his arrest, but he was briefly on Unalaska's payroll.
