Suspected burglar shot by police in Aiea

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:40 a.m. HST, Oct 30, 2013

A 35-year-old man was hospitalized in serious condition after being shot multiple times by Honolulu Police Department officers in Aiea before 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said the burglary suspect fled from officers, entered an Aiea home, assaulted a resident and tried to flee in a pickup truck, striking and injuring officers.

The home, at 99-52 Moanalua Road, is several hundred feet away from Alvah A. Scott Elementary School.

Police said the burglary suspect is in serious but stable condition and now faces five counts of first-degree attempted murder, one count of burglary and two counts of auto theft. He has a history of felony convictions, including first-degree robbery, burglary, theft, auto theft and drug offenses.

EMS said a second man at the scene, in his 60s, refused treatment at the scene.

A generation ago we just had stabbings. Now there are multiple shootings each week it seems. The flood, the proliferation of guns seems to have come ashore. MS-13 gangs smuggling? Who? Given the density of dwellings and good neighborhoods juxtaposed to bad ones, I fear an epidemic of gun violence escalating in Hawaii. Not good.

Heeh? The cops shot the guy. Says absolutely nothing of him shooting at the cops. MS-13? Really? You wouldn't notice a proliferation of bad Hispanic dudes with tats and hairnets at Kam Shopping Center?

HPD does not want to report that the vast majority of illegal guns and felony crimes committed with firearms are UNREGISTERED. Reported stolen or just totally UNKNOWN, nationwide. No record or trace. The system does not work. The brass maintain the line to keep "IN LINE" with legislators who scratch their backs as they get scratched. Also a proliferation of violent crimes are perpetuated by Micronesians and Filipinos, not to be racist. Finally, police are armed to protect themselves, and authorized to use deadly force to protect their own lives and THEIR GUNS from being taken. Touch a cop's gun from behind while in its holster (try it), you'll get a take down and cuffs slapped on, right? Normal person can't protect him/her self or their family, in any legal place they have a right to be. EXCEPT your own home. So cops are armed to partially protect that which they would not NEED to protect, if no one KNEW they had a gun. i.e. plainclothes, off-duties, and UC's. Hawaii **allows** us to stand our ground at home with (currently) no duty to retreat, provided a felony is occurring (or will imminently occur) to you and your family, thank you for being so gracious!

We should profile all Micronesians and Filipinos. They are bad.

I agree. The video captured the entire dramatic event. In other words, absolutely worthless. Why was it posted?
