Early Morning Shooting

Around 4:00 this morning, patrol officers were on the corner of Nahua Street and Kuhio Avenue when they saw a dark-colored truck driving at a high rate of speed heading the wrong way on Nahua. The truck crossed Kuhio and stopped briefly on the sidewalk where officers approached the vehicle. The vehicle then reversed back onto Nahua, turned onto Kuhio and accelerated toward an officer. The officer fired multiple shots at the truck as it drove toward him narrowly missing him. The truck then turned onto Lewers and climbed the sidewalk where two officers attempted to stop the vehicle. The truck continued onto the Ala Wai Boulevard, where it struck two parked vehicles and a pole. The suspect began ramming several marked police vehicles before officers fired, striking the driver.

The male suspect was transported in critical condition and died at the hospital.
