Waipahu car chase ends in assault, shooting

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 05:56 p.m. HST, Jun 21, 2013

Police have opened an attempted murder case following a shooting late Thursday night near a Waipahu gas station.

At least three shots were fired, grazing a 48-year-old man, hitting a vehicle and a window of a home.

The incident began around 9:30 p.m. when an argument erupted between two groups of men, police said.

One car contained two men, ages 48 and 19.

The suspects in the second car allegedly chased the car with the two men, which crashed during the chase.

During the confrontation, police said three shots were fired by one of the male suspects.

One of the shots slightly injured the man, 48, who had fled in a car with the 19-year-old. A second round struck a car driven by a 46-year-old man. The third round went through the window of a nearby home of a 51-year-old woman.

Besides second-degree attempted murder, police have classified the case as unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle, reckless endangering and motor vehicle collision.

Kris Tanahara, spokeswoman for Aloha Petroleum which owns some of the Shell gas stations in the state, said no one was injured at the gas station at 94-380 Pupupani St.

She said a pole at the Waipahu facility was damaged during the altercation.

probably non-permitted - any firearm in a vehicle is a violation of the law and should not be held against the many legally permitted law abiding individuals.

Survival of the fittest, in lolo land. Perhaps, this is the most effective way to weed out the unfit in out society, kill each other. The judicial system is tedious and lengthy, resulting in incarcerating the misfits only for a short duration.

I agree, let them kill each other. The problem is when stray bullets hit innocent bystanders, as apparently happened in this case. The sad thing is, these idiots will be back out on the streets in no time to continue their bad behavior. The next time, someone may not be so lucky.

It is important to also find where the guns came from and who are the owners of the guns and how did these undesireables get ahold of them. Tracking down the gun traffic would really help.

Why, why is it important to know where they came from?

Check ballistics out on this and compare to the incident where some guy was shot at several times in the Bank of Hawaii parking lot in Waipahu. They never caught that guy and it takes a lot of "something" to fire "several" shots at someone. Common factor in both stories.

A large number of these conflicts involve drug transactions. Drug dealers and such rely on their sale of marijuana and other drugs. If we make it less lucrative for these criminals, we pull the rug right from under them big time. And legalizing marijuana will greatly reduce the income for these criminals who do not pay taxes on their revenues. Consumers who use this plant will no longer need them to satisfy their needs and that leaves these drug dealers with a smaller customer base. If marijuana were to be legalized it would be regulated and taxed much like cigarettes and alcohol. The state would bring in a huge revenue from this plant. The criminals would lose that income. Consumers who use this plant would not populate our prisons and thereby we save a lot of money. Marijuana users are like cigarette users. They are not harming others (except for second hand smoke) and are otherwise law abiding citizens who pay taxes. We need to stop criminalizing these people and target the real criminals, the drug dealers.
