Oahu grand jury re-indicts Air Force sergeant in strip club shooting


HONOLULU — An Oahu grand jury has again indicted a 35-year-old Air Force sergeant on two counts of attempted murder.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the grand jury Wednesday re-indicted Air Force Tech. Sgt. Claude Custard of Ewa Beach on two counts of attempted second-degree murder and three firearm violations.

Circuit Judge Randal Lee cited trial delays and dismissed the case July 3. Prosecutors refiled the charges.

Police say that Custard on Dec. 3, 2011, after a dispute fired shots at two men in the parking lot of the Princess Palace strip club at the Pearl City Business Plaza.

Prosecutors say Custard fired a handgun as one of the two men drove off, striking him multiple times and critically injuring him.

Police say Custard fired at the second man and missed.
