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.

An Unalaska man was arrested Monday for making threats against two people and "the occupants of a local organization," according to a statement from the Department of Public Safety.

Acting Police Chief Jennifer Shockley said the arrest is unconnected to a July incident in which two Unalaska teenagers allegedly threatened another teen with a handgun.

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.

Unalaska's first responders briefly closed Henry Swanson Drive Tuesday night when a vessel at the Carl E. Moses Boat Harbor reported an ammonia leak.

The Department of Public Safety contained the leak from a tank on the F/V Aleutian Sable and reopened the road by 8:20 p.m., within an hour of the initial closure. 

Officials say two people were treated for minor injuries related to the "short" ammonia release.

The City Council is praising police and school officials for their handling of a July incident that recently came to light, during which two Unalaska teenagers allegedly threatened another teen with a handgun.

On Tuesday, Councilor Dennis Robinson commended both groups for their "exceptional" work.
