Police arrest suspect in Pearl City strip club shooting

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:54 a.m. HST, Dec 05, 2011

The suspect in the shooting of a 24-year-old man is in  police custody awaiting charges. Police said the Ewa Beach man turned himself in at the main police station at 8:40 Saturday night following tips to CrimeStoppers.

Police thanked the public for help in locating the suspect in an early morning shooting that left a 24-year-old man in critical condition at the Pali Momi Medical Center.

The shooting followed an argument in the Princess Palace strip club that continued in the back parking lot of the Pearl City Business Plaza on 803 Kamehameha Highway shortly after 2 a.m., police said.

As one of the men involved in the argument drove off, he fired five shots toward two men, both 24, from his dark-colored pickup truck with the design of a colored, full-sized joker on the hood, police said.

The second man was not injured.

The shots may have come from a semi-automatic pistol, police said.

The suspect, described as 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, 160 to 180 pounds, with a crew cut, fled west on Kamehameha Highway.

"Police are looking for a suspect" in these stories always seems a bit ambiguous. Do they know who they are looking for, or not?

So true. The other one I can't stand is "alleged". I mean a guy could be caught on video and that video could be displayed all over this site and they still call him an alleged criminal. They must really have some over paid laywers on their staff...

and their momma's and aunties will say they were all good boys and they've never done anything wrong. Totally sick of this really. Nothing good happens outside a strip club at 2 am.

Now why do I suppose that, "...heading West" is not surprising?

I agree. Maybe we can get some bulldozers over there and push the whole bunch into the ocean.

"ALLEGED" is used to prevent the suspect's lawyer from using it as being prejudice to getting a fair trial.. ie: being convicted in the media and thus tainting any juries minds...

You took the words out of my mouth. It's called legalese. Perps, suspects, alleged, and a lot of other terms are used because they are innocent until proven guilty. Calling them otherwise is slander.

Why is the SA so color sensitive? Other media described the suspect as African-American or black. Yet this newspaper leaves out this detail and urges the public to apprehend the shooter, even going as far as describing his truck. Don't you think that this detail will save the trouble of looking for people that obviously doesn't fit the description?
