ANCHORAGE , Alaska (AP) - Two men from separate western Alaska villages are accused of shooting weapons around their communities, in one case striking three people with birdshot.

Troopers say no serious injuries were reported in Tuluksak (to-LOOK’-suk), where 20-year-old Gerald Lemont was arrested on charges of attempted murder, assault and weapons misconduct.

Lemont is accused of shooting a family member in the face Wednesday with a shotgun containing birdshot, then shooting a tribal police officer in the back and another person around the head.

According to troopers, all the Tuluksak victims declined medical attention.

In Tununak (too-NOO’-nuck), 26-year-old Greg Angaiak was arrested on charges of assault, theft, weapons misconduct and violating conditions of release. Troopers say Angaiak was accused of shooting a gun into the air around the village Wednesday.

Both men are in custody in Bethel. It’s unclear if they have attorneys.
