On Dec. 4 Gabriel Romero shot three people. The 22-year-old Navy sailor was assigned to the submarine the USS Columbia and had just shown up for routine guard duty at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard.
Just minutes after he started his shift, he fired his M-4 rifle at a group of civilian workers, killing Roldan Agustin, 49, and Vincent Kapoi Jr., 30, and wounding Roger Nakamine, 36.
The deadly incident came seemingly without warning. Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard is one of the state’s top employers and biggest industrial bases.
