Investigation revealed that the victim and another person arrived at the residence to find the door had been pried open. As he entered the residence the victim was confronted by two people wearing masks. The victim was struck with the butt end of a rifle by one of the masked individuals. A struggle ensued over the rifle and during the altercation one round was fired. The two suspects then fled on foot. Troopers received information that the suspects got on the ferry and left Kodiak the following day.
Further investigation by Troopers determined the two suspects to be Benjamin Bodi, age 37 of Kodiak, and Summer Suydam, age 39 of Kodiak.

The suspects should be considered dangerous; do not approach them. Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Bodi and Suydam is asked to contact the nearest law enforcement agency ASAP.
