- KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - A 43-year-old Kodiak woman was treated and released for a gunshot wound she suffered on Afognak Island. State Troopers say Shawn Strauss on Sunday afternoon was flown from Danger Bay logging camp to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center. Troopers tell the Kodiak Daily Mirror that Strauss and fellow Evergreen Timber employee Ricky Aschenbrenner took a logging road about 30 miles from the camp for a beachcombing trip. They were carrying a shotgun for protection from bears. As Aschenbrenner tried to remove gun from the driver's side of the vehicle, the gun became stuck. Aschenbrenner tried to free the gun and it fired, striking Strauss. Troopers say no criminal charges are planned.
