Pearl Harbor Shooting

A US Navy sailor G. Romero has shot three civilians, killing two of them, before taking his own life at the historic military base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, military officials said.

“I can report that Joint Base security personnel did respond to the report of an active shooter today in the vicinity of Dry Dock 2 in the naval shipyard,” Rear Admiral Robert B Chadwick said.

Chadwick said he did not know the motive behind Wednesday’s shooting. The third victim was hospitalised.

The incident came three days before the 78th anniversary of the December 7, 1941, attack on the naval base that led the United States to enter the second world war by declaring war on Japan.
Chadwick added that the shooter Gabriel Romero, who has been “tentatively” identified as an active duty sailor assigned to the USS Columbia, died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
An unnamed witness told Hawaii News Now in an on-air interview that he heard gunfire near Dry Dock 2 at the base and looked up from his desk to see the gunman Gabriel Romero put a gun to his head and shoot himself.
