The Maui News - When shots were fired at a half-dozen golfers on Sunday afternoon at Maui Country Club, they charged their assailant armed with golf clubs. After a chase, an "unidentified responsible" was arrested. Police are continuing to investigate.

One golfer suffered an injury to his upper-right arm on Sunday, April 21, after being shot with a pe-llet gun while golfing, said Joe Bradley, The Maui News publisher, who was waiting to tee off when the incident occurred.

At 12:24 p.m., Maui Police dispatchers received multiple calls of shots being fired off of Nonohe Place in Pa'ia near the country club, said acting Sgt. Karen Wong, public information officer for the Maui Police Department.

Shortly after the ambulance was reported leaving the country club, a police cruiser pulled up to Maui Memorial Medical Center's emergency room after 1 p.m. An ambulance arrived a few minutes later with the apparent victim.

The suspect was brought out of the back seat of the police car with his face and legs bloodied, put on a gurney and taken inside with his hands and feet shackled.

The apparent victim, Maui Country Club member Paul Peters, walked on his own into the hospital's emergency room. Blood was visible trickling from a small wound above his bicep and about three inches below his shoulder.

The shooting drew a half-dozen police cruisers and an ambulance to the Spreckelsville course where golfers continued to play, even while police investigated the crime scene.
