State troopers have concluded an on scene investigation but still have not released details as to what led to a young boy’s shooting death in Kokhanok over the weekend.  Kokhanok is a village of about 160 people on the south shore of Iliamna Lake.

Five-year-old Kadin Mann was accidentally shot Saturday, according to troopers, and flown to Anchorage for medical care. He died there Sunday.

Troopers, including a member of the Alaska Bureau of Investigation, were on scene, apparently using specialized equipment. They’ve not said how Mann was killed or who fired the gun.

A GoFundMe account set up Sunday to help the family with funeral arrangements has raised more than $4500.

Mental health counselors are meeting today with students and the community members dealing with the tragedy.
