Police investigating shooting at Waikiki Trade Center

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:20 a.m. HST, Apr 21, 2013

Honolulu police are investigating a shooting at the Waikiki Trade Center that left a 25-year-old man in serious condition early this morning.

Police said two 25-year-old men were fighting when one shot the other.

Paramedics responded to the scene and treated a 25-year-old man for a gunshot wound just before 3 a.m., the Emergency Medical Services Division reported. He was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Police arrested a Waipahu man around 3 a.m. on suspicion of second-degree attempted murder, place to keep a firearm and having an unregistered firearm.

Initially, paramedics responded to the Zanzabar nightclub.

However, a spokesman for Zanzabar said their security cameras did not show the men entering the nightclub and that patrons are screened for weapons before they can enter.

I doubt it that you've ever been to this club. I like it as I've been there a few times. There are bad elements at every late nite venue.

Shhhh, don't tell them that. You know those bill of rights trampling loonies will never believe that a criminal will not obey the law. Don't like what I'm saying? Maybe you can put strict regulations on my first amendment right as well.

Yes, the laws were made for the law abiding to follow not the illegals, lawless or criminals to obey. Look at our cingressional delegates wgo want to make illegal aliens who clearly broke the U.S. goernment law on immigration legal citizens ahead of those whoare still waiting for their oppotunity to legally immigrate to the U.S. and wait again to become legal naturalized U.S. citizens. We don't need laws that allow illegal activities and make them legal.

As one of the owners of Zanzabar, I can say with certainty that the shooting at the Waikiki Trade Center was not associated with our nightclub in any way. Security cameras show that the individuals had not entered or exited Zanzabar, but in fact entered the lobby of the Trade Center from Kuhio St. Our customers are screened with metal detectors before being allowed in because we want a safe and secure environment where people can have fun. We have over 150,000 customers a year and on average less than 2 incidents a year, none of them involving firearms.

"Metal detectors"? At a nightclub? What kind of "nightclub" is this? Weird. And "Zanzabar"... a name taken from a Hollywood movie.

To jfunai. Sorry brah, one act of violence is one too many. Two acts of violence is way too many. In this day and age of gun violence, how can you condone such behavior. Defending your club in light of violence makes your club look bad. Shame on you, shame for the family, shame for the community. Shame on you for thinking about your club before others.

I have not been in a club in many years and I'm not use to idea of needing a metal detector at the door.Different times I guess but the owner did say the insistence did not involve guns. Give him credit for being responsible.

The responsible thing to do is to close the nightclub. Imagine having to resort to metal detectors. Kinda tells you what kind of clientele patronizes the business. Guns or not, violence is violence. it puts my child, your child, everyone's child at risk. Wrong place, wrong time and its sorry sad time. I can't give the guy any credit for being a responsible person.

I don't think clubs are the most wholesome place to go but people like to go and those people are over 21,not children.Adult children will make that decision for themselves.

to connie, get real. Many acts of violence occur daily in Hawaii, USA and globally. jfunai is not condoning behavior by installing metal detectors. How did you arrive at that assessment? In fact jfunai is being pro-active, to protect her customers. I foresee metal detectors in all establishments where patrons act stupid. And connie, there is no shame in protecting yourself and your property. Sheesh!

Expect more as more guns are registered. Too easy for anyone at all to get a gun.

And yes, it matters even if the gun in a crime wasn't registered. The more guns are around, the easier it is for anyone to get one, period.

Laws were not meant for the illegals or criminals to abide by, the laws were just guidelines for the law abiding citizens to know what was considered unlawful. Criminals don't care about the laws. Why bother going through the bother to register a hand gun or rifle? A clear example of this would be our current congressional delegates want to allow illegal aliens to obtain legal U.S. citizenship after knowingly committing and unlawful act. Amnesty? Are you kidding? What of those people who have and are still waiting for their opportunity to enter the U.S. legally to then wait again to become legal naturalized U.S. citizens? Is our Junior Senator from Hawaii saying that it is okay to commit an illegal act by breaking the law to become a legal immigrant and to reward them U.S. citizenship?

An unregistered gun is not nessesarily illegal, you can posses and unregistered gun if you make it and it would not have a manufactures serial number. There are manufacturers who sell unfinished blocks of aluminum which can be completed into a gun with a few minor modificatons.
