Man arrested for shooting golfer and police officer with pellet gun

Police say a suspect is in custody after a shooting Sunday afternoon at the Maui Country Club.

The Maui News says a man was shot in his right arm with a pellet gun and a police officer responding to the incident was also struck. The report says the pellet hit the officer's bulletproof vest.

It all started around 12:30 p.m. when someone started randomly shooting at golfers. Instead of running for cover, The Maui News reports at least a half-dozen attacked the shooting suspect with golf clubs.

Apparently, the golfers thought the man might have a .22-caliber firearm.

The victim and suspect was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center.
