HONOLULU -

Three weeks after a Schofield Barracks soldier was shot and killed by police in Waikiki, the Honolulu Liquor Commission continues its investigation into where the soldier was drinking before the incident.

22-year-old Gregory Gordon smashed a truck into police cars moments before he was killed.

Gordon's blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit to drive, and the Liquor Commission believes he was served alcohol after he was already drunk.

Liquor Commission investigators believe they know the bar on Kuhio Avenue where Gordon was drinking, and plan to interview witnesses as well as audit receipts.

Two separate police investigations are ongoing.
