Man charged in random roadway shooting spree will be arraigned next week

  • Shooting suspect Toby Stangel appears in Honolulu District Court this morning to face 15 charges including murder, attempted murder and firearms violations.

Toby Stangel, accused of killing one person and injuring several others during a 17-minute random shooting spree last week, is scheduled to be arraigned in Circuit Court on June 13.

Stangel, 28, will enter a plea before Judge Richard Perkins at 8:30 a.m. on 20 counts that include charges of murder, attempted murder and drug violations involving cocaine, marijuana and a drug prescribed for panic and anxiety attacks.

 An Oahu grand jury indicted him Wednesday on three counts of first-degree attempted murder of trying to kill more than one person and firing shots at two police officers. If convicted of first-degree attempted murder, Stangel would be sentenced to a mandatory life term without parole, the state’s harshest sentence.

Police recovered drugs, drug paraphernalia, a hunting knife and a pair of brass knuckles from his car  when he was arrested Friday morning.

Killed in the shooting which occurred in Kapahulu was Tammy Nguyen, a mother of 10. She was driving which had stopped at a red light.

Two other drivers were wounded on H-1 freeway near Likelike Highway, and they remain in the hospital.

Stangel is also accused of later firing at two police officers conducting a traffic stop on Moanalua Freeway. His bail is $5 million.
