The man shot and wounded by an off-duty FBI agent in Honolulu on Sunday was brandishing an airsoft gun that shoots plastic pellets, but resembles a real gun, the Honolulu Star Bulletin reported.

“The important thing is not what kind of weapon he was carrying, but the perception of the agent at the time he took the shot,”  said FBI spokesman and special agent Tom Simon said, according to the newspaper.

The incident began when a man and woman flagged down the FBI agent and said a man was brandishing a gun. The man ordered the agent to put down the gun, but instead, he moved toward the agent, and the agent shot and wounded him, the paper reported.

The Star Bulletin reported that Honolulu police during a press conference declined to disclose the weapon used by Martin Boegel, 27. But it discussed the dangers of brandishing a fake gun.  Boegel’s mother says he has a history of mental illness, the paper reported.

An off-duty FBI agent shot and wounded a 27-year-old man in Honululu on Sunday around 1 p.m., the Honolulu Advertiser reported. The man was out on bail after posing as a cop on a college campus.

The paper reported that Martin Boegel, 27, of Makiki, was brandishing a gun outside his car. Two people flagged down a 31-year-old man who happened to be the FBI agent.

The agent told Boegel to put down his gun, the paper reporter. He refused and started walking toward the agent who shot him, the paper said.

The FBI is investigating the matter.
