Prosecutors charged a 33-year-old Air Force sergeant Monday night with two counts of attempted second-degree murder, and tacked on weapons charges in connection with an early morning shooting Saturday outside a Pearl City strip club.
Air Force Tech Sgt. Claude Custard of Ewa Beach allegedly shot at two 24-year-old men Saturday morning and turned himself in at the main police station 8:40 p.m. Saturday following tips received by CrimeStoppers.
Police said Custard had an argument with one of the men in the Princess Palace strip club at the Pearl City Business Plaza, which spilled out into the back parking lot, located at 803 Kamehameha Highway shortly after 2 a.m.
Custard then allegedly fired a handgun as one of the two men drove off, striking one man in the body area multiple times and critically injuring him, then fired at and missed a second man, police said. He then fled the scene.
Custard is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.
This is just more bad news of shooting incidents that involve either our military or our police officers.
