Man charged in golf course shooting

Maui police on Saturday arrested a 59-year-old man who was indicted on 20 charges by a Maui County grand jury on Friday for his alleged involvement in shooting golfers and a police officer with a pellet rifle last week at the Maui Country Club in Spreckelsville, police said Saturday.

Alan Engling, who has no local address, was charged with 11 counts of first-degree terroristic threatening, seven counts of second-degree assault and one count each for first-degree assault on a police officer and resisting arrest, police said. He was being held at the Wailuku Police Station on Saturday afternoon on $110,000 bail.

Engling was arrested following his release from Maui Memorial Medical Center on Saturday afternoon. He suffered facial injuries in the incident in which he allegedly shot at seven golfers near the 8th hole at the golf course April 21.

Police said that the shots came from kiawe brush and hit one golfer in his upper right arm.

After golfers converged on the suspect, police subdued and arrested him. One officer, wearing a bullet-proof vest, was shot in the chest as he moved toward the suspect.

The suspect had initially been arrested last week, but was released pending further investigation of multiple charges of assault and terroristic threatening.
