HPD Homicide Division Sergeant R. Montalvo and Detective K. Amri reported:
HPD patrol officers responded to a shooting call at an apartment complex at the above address and found Mr. Bernard suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in a walkway between two buildings. Paramedics pronounced him deceased at the scene.
Investigators were advised that Bernard got into an argument with an unidentified suspect that escalated into a physical fight. The suspect produced a gun and then shot Bernard before fleeing the scene on foot.
Further investigation identified Page as the suspect. He was subsequently charged on July 22 and turned himself in last Thursday (July 28).
