Drugs, but no gun found in wounded suspect's pack

By Brandon Masuoka
Advertiser Staff Writer

Police yesterday searched a fanny pack that belonged to a man shot by a police officer early Sunday morning in Mililani and found drugs and cash, but no gun.

Police spokeswoman Michelle Yu said police, who had a search warrant, also found drug paraphernalia.

Yu said police are conducting tests to determine what kind of drugs were recovered. She didn’t say what type of drug paraphernalia was found or how much money was recovered.

The 34-year-old man was shot and wounded by a 29-year-old police officer after fleeing the officer on a stolen motorcycle at the Mililani Town Center, police said. The officer was investigating a complaint about a man with a weapon who threatened to rob another man.

The man was shot by the officer after a brief chase that ended at a construction site at the end of Meheula Parkway in Mililani Mauka. The officer said he fired one shot after he saw the man reaching for something in the fanny pack, according to police.

The man was taken to the Queen’s Medical Center in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to guarded condition, police said. Police opened an internal affairs investigation into the shooting which is scheduled to be completed by the middle of next week, police said.

Police are not releasing the name of the motorcyclist or the officer.
