Prosecutors charged a 33-year-old Air Force sergeant Monday night with two counts of attempted second-degree murder and weapons charges in connection with an early-morning shooting Saturday outside a Pearl City strip club.
Air Force Tech Sgt. Claude Custard of Ewa Beach allegedly shot at two 24-year-old men Saturday morning and turned himself in at the main police station 8:40 p.m. Saturday following tips received by CrimeStoppers.
Police said Custard had an argument with one of the men in the Princess Palace strip club at the Pearl City Business Plaza, which spilled out into the back parking lot, at 803 Kamehameha Highway shortly after 2 a.m.
Custard allegedly fired a handgun as one of the two men drove off, striking one man multiple times and critically injuring him, then fired at and missed a second man before fleeing, police said.
Custard is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.
