And why was he all bloody? It's kind of implied that the cop beat him up. I agree with SteveToo, poor reporting.

I'm sure the suspect accidentally tripped and fell down. That's their story and they're sticking to it.

From Hawaii News Now: Police say a suspect is in custody after a shooting Sunday afternoon at the Maui Country Club. The Maui News says a man was shot in his right arm with a pellet gun and a police officer responding to the incident was also struck. The report says the pellet hit the officer's bulletproof vest. It all started around 12:30 p.m. when someone started randomly shooting at golfers. Instead of running for cover, The Maui News reports at least a half-dozen attacked the shooting suspect with golf clubs. Apparently, the golfers thought the man might have a .22-caliber firearm.
