Alaska State Troopers responded to a report Thursday morning that a weapon was discharged in Kasilof, which prompted a precautionary lockdown of a nearby school.

Trooper spokesperson Megan Peters said they received a call at 8:55 a.m. of a domestic disturbance approximately 3 miles from Tustumena Elementary School.

Peters said a patrol unit arrived on the scene at a residence off of Crooked Creek Road and detained Brian Henry, 40, of Kasilof. Henry is charged with assault in the third degree and has been taken into custody, she said. Nobody was injured in the incident and troopers are not releasing the name of the victim involved in the domestic dispute, she said.

Peters said troopers notified the school that they were responding to an incident in the vicinity as a precaution. A SERT team arrived on scene, but the situation was contained by 11 a.m., she said.
The incident is now over, but troopers are still on scene investigating, she said.
