Glen Alvin Gaspar

Officer Gaspar was shot and killed while attempting to apprehend a suspect at a local ice cream store.

The victim and other officers had staked out a shopping center and observed the suspect enter the store. The officers had gone there with a warrant for the suspect's arrest, charging him with the attempted murder of two men during a February 1st incident in the parking lot of the First Assembly of God church on Moanalua Road.

The suspect began to struggle when the officers attempted to arrest him. During the struggle, the suspect produced a handgun and opened fire, striking Officer Gaspar. Officer Gaspar was transported to St. Francis-West Medical Center where he succumbed to his wounds. Another officer was also wounded, but survived. The suspect was apprehended at the scene and was later found guilty of second-degree murder at the trial and subsequently sentenced to life in prison.

Officer Gaspar was assigned to the Career Criminal Unit, and had been a member of the Honolulu Police Department for 12 years. He is survived by his two daughters.

It has been a long time since I visited this page, but you are not forgotten. I had planned to visit your grave when we made a trip to Hawaii, but due to the airlines I was not able to. I hope that the girls are doing good and the rest of your family are well. Rest in the knowledge you are not forgotten.
