Report: Fil-am among those killed in Pearl Harbor shooting 

Authorities have disclosed  that a Filipino-American identified as 49 year-old Roldam Agustin was among the three people killed in the Pearl Harbor shooting, Wednesday this week.

Agustin was a native of Laoag City and grew up in Hawaii according to a report by the Associated Press.

“I’m so sorry, anak ko. I’m still shaking,” his mother told AP.  “He’s a good man,” she added.

Agustin used to work in the US Navy before becoming a metals inspector in the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard.

A US sailor had shot himself after killing two more shipyard workers including Agustin last week. The sailor took his life after opening fire near Shipyard Drydock 2, a maintenance area for nuclear submarines
