Glen Alvin Gaspar

Officer Glen Gaspar was shot and killed while attempting to apprehend a suspect at a local ice cream store in the Kapolei Shopping Center at 590 Farrington Highway.

He and other officers were conducting a stakeout at 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 an incident that occurred one month earlier in the parking lot of the First Assembly of God church on Moanalua Road.

The 27-year-old suspect began to struggle when the officers attempted to arrest him. During the struggle, the man 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. He 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 served with the Honolulu Police Department for 12 years. He is survived by his two daughters.

May you Rest in Peace my fellow brother class mate of the 110 th Recruit class, you were a great person in the academy and became a fine Officer. I always think that your death would have been mine, as I was in the process of submitting a transfer to the Division that you were in, but you being the better man had beat me in rank and had obtained the undercover assignment. While, I was assigned else where in patrol. I know your widowed wife; Renee misses you deeply, as your daughters. God Bless you for being the best Officer & person you are.
Love & Aloha, Patrick S.
