2 men arrested in connection with shooting outside Pearl City nightclub

PEARL CITY, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The two suspects involved in a shooting outside a Pearl City nightclub early Wednesday have been charged, Honolulu police said.

Police said 34-year-old Samson Anzai was charged with second-degree assault. Chris Hong, 31, was charged with second-degree attempted murder, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and two criminal contempt of court warrants.

The incident started at Club Hot Ash off Kamehameha Highway just before 2 a.m.

According to HPD, two men were fighting outside of the nightclub when one of them pulled a gun.

The gunman fired four times, but police said he never actually hit his intended target. That’s when the gunman reportedly jumped into the passenger seat of a car and as the driver sped away from the nightclub, he hit the victim.

Police said the victim only suffered abrasions to his leg and not any life-threatening injuries.

They said he jumped into another car and chased after the gunman and man who hit him with a car.

The chase took them all the way to Kapolei with police in pursuit.

It ended just before 2:30 a.m. at the Ka Makana Alii shopping center, where the two suspects were taken into custody.

The victim has not yet been identified.
