Pearl Harbor shooting probe finds mental health care flaws

HONOLULU — The Navy said Tuesday its investigation into a shooting at Pearl Harbor last December was unable to determine what caused a submarine sailor to fire his service weapon at three civilian workers, killing two and wounding one, before he fatally shot himself.

Sailor Behind Pearl Harbor Shooting Was ‘Insider Threat’ with Underdiagnosed Mental Issues

A sailor’s mental health problems were underdiagnosed and not properly communicated to his command in the months leading up to last year’s fatal shooting at a Hawaii shipyard, a newly released investigation into the attack found.

Navy officials say they still haven’t pinpointed exactly what drove Machinist’s Mate Auxiliary Fireman Gabriel Antonio Romero, a 22-year-old assigned to the fast-attack submarine Columbia, to shoot three civilians at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard Dec. 4, 2019.

Romero killed two Defense Department employees that day — Vincent J. Kapoi, a metals inspector apprentice, and Roldan A. Agustin, a shop planner — and injured another using his M4 service rifle. As law enforcement personnel responded within seconds, Romero shot and killed himself using a Navy-issued M9 pistol.
