A Kodiak man was arrested last week after allegedly opening fire on two people outside an RV. The victims were taken to the emergency room to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Terrence Blakey, 37, was arrested for two counts of felony assault in the third degree, two counts of misdemeanor reckless endangerment and one count of misdemeanor misconduct involving weapons in the fourth degree, according to court documents.
On Dec. 24 at 1:30 a.m., the Kodiak Police Department received a 911 call from a man who reported that he had been shot in the knee with a handgun.
He said his knee was bleeding and he was having trouble walking. His friend, who had been with him during the altercation, was allegedly shot in the arm.
The second man had reportedly knocked on Blakey’s RV parked on Marine Way when Blakey came out and started firing a handgun at the two men. The first man told police he ran away while yelling at his friend to take cover. The second man was later taken to the emergency room by his father, and told police that he blacked out after being shot.
The doctor confirmed that the second man had a gunshot wound to his arm. X-rays showed a projectile lodged in his bicep. However, the doctor did not believe that the first man’s knee injury was from the bullet, but from falling to the ground.
The officers who responded to the incident saw a man drive a cream-colored RV from Marine Way to a gas station before moving to a parking lot on Thorsheim Street.
Police spoke to Blakey and asked about the alleged shooting. Blakey reported that there were two drunk men who kicked his RV door, so he confronted them with a handgun and fired warning shots.
He told police that when heard a loud bang outside of his RV, he grabbed his gun and looked outside, where he saw two men.
According to the court document, when Blakey asked if they had touched his RV, one of them told him to “mind his business and go back inside.”
Blakey admitted to firing a round into the air. He followed one of the men away from the RV into the center of the road, at which point, the court documents state, Blakey turned on the laser sight attached to his .40-caliber Glock handgun.
Blakey told police that the man started to move toward him, so he shifted his aim from the man’s chest to the ground about 1 foot in front of the man.
He said he fired one round to keep the man back. He saw sparks come up from the ground but the man grabbed his own shoulder and went down to his knees. He believed the man could have been hit with a ricochet bullet from the ground.
Blakey said he returned to the RV and moved it to another location after he saw an ambulance pass by.
During an investigation into the incident, police found two .40-caliber bullet casings near Marine Way where the RV had been parked.
The day before the shooting, Blakey reportedly had “contact” with security officers from a seafood processing plant where he had been terminated about two months before.
Blakey told police that he believed employees from a seafood processing plant were harassing him and following him. When he saw an employee from the plant next to his RV, he approached him with an “AR styled assault rifle” to “send a message” to the employee.
