Hilo officer recounts effects of shooting

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) One of the Hilo police officers shot in the leg last year says the ordeal led to pain, sleepless nights and some depression.

Officer Joshua Gouveia spent his second day on the witness stand telling jurors he thought he was going to die.

Keaka Marin is on trial, accused of attempted murder in the shootings of Gouveia and Officer Garrett Hatada. The officers were shot while investigating gunshots heard in a parking lot where they found a man hiding under a vehicle.

Gouveia says he still suffers from pain in both hips.

Defense attorney Steve Strauss last week in his opening statement suggested Hatada shot Gouveia. Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports Strauss deferred cross-examination of Gouveia because he plans to call him as a defense witness.

The trial continues Tuesday.
