FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Daniel Serkov was indicted by a Fairbanks Grand Jury on Tuesday, Jan. 31 for the shooting deaths of Andrey Dorozhin and Dmitry Sergiyenko that took place in Delta Junction on Friday, Jan. 20, 2023.

Serkov’s charges include 2 counts of Murder in the 1st Degree, 2 counts of Murder in the 2nd Degree, 1 count of Tampering with Physical Evidence, and 1 count of Criminal Mischief in the 5th Degree.

According to a press release, Serkov told investigators he was staying in a rehabilitation center outside Delta Junction. While at the center two men confronted him about his prescription medications. He became frightened when a knife was presented and thought the men were going to harm him and take away his meds, even though no one actually picked up the knife.

Serkov told law enforcement, “He became angry and shot both men. He claimed that one of the men fell immediately and the other attempted to run away, but he kept shooting at both men.  He further indicated that after he emptied his first magazine, he reloaded and kept shooting.  He then shot a dog that lived at the residence.  Before departing the scene, he picked up some of the spent shell casings and put them in his jacket pocket.”

Serkov said he drove to Fairbanks after the shooting in Delta and “shot off rounds at the South Cushman Gun Range.” Then he went to Costco and sold his jacket that had the spent rounds in one of the jacket pockets to a couple shopping at the store. After this, “He went to the Fairbanks Police Department in hopes they would confiscate his gun for an unrelated reason without knowing that it has been used in a homicide,” said Serkov.

Serkov is being held at the Department of Corrections in Fairbanks. His bail is set at $2 million dollars.

His next court date is scheduled for February 8 at 1:30 p.m. for a Superior Court Arraignment at the Rabinowitz Courthouse in Fairbanks.
