Pearl Harbor Shooting Leaves Two Civilians and Sailor Dead

PEARL HARBOR, HI (Ben Caxton) — An active duty US sailor whose submarine was docked at Pearl Harbor opened fire on three civilian employees Wednesday, killing two and then taking his own life just days before dignitaries and veterans descend on the base for the 78th anniversary of the Japanese attack. The commander of Navy Region Hawaii, Rear Adm. Robert Chadwick, said he didn’t know the motive behind the shooting at the Hawaii base’s naval shipyard that left the third civilian Department of Defense employee hospitalized. In a statement, Kaua`i Mayor Derek Kawakami weighed in saying in a statement “We are all shaken by this senseless act of violence. All of Hawai`i hurts when our `ohana gets hurt. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and all who serve our Country at the shipyard. We send our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.”
