Honolulu police have reopened Ala Wai Boulevard after a fatal shooting of a 22-year-old soldier from Schofield Barracks early Tuesday morning.
The soldier's name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The 25th Infantry Division says it is cooperating with police in the investigation.
"This is an incredibly tragic incident, and we offer our condolences to the Soldier's family and to the officers injured," said Lt. Col. Derrick Cheng, spokesman for the 25th Infantry Division. "We're working closely with the HPD as they lead the investigation, and they have our full support throughout this process."
The shooting was reported around 4 a.m along the Ala Wai Boulevard.
Police officers were on the corner of Nahua Street and Kuhio Avenue when they saw a dark-colored truck speeding heading the wrong way on Nahua Street.
Police say the truck crossed Kuhio Avenue and stopped briefly on the sidewalk where officers approached the vehicle.
The truck then reversed back onto Nahua Street, turned onto Kuhio Avenue and accelerated toward an officer. The officer fired multiple shots at the truck as it drove towards him, narrowly missing him.
The truck then turned onto Lewers Street onto the sidewalk where two officers tried to stop the vehicle.
