WAIPAHU, Hawaii - Honolulu police are searching for at least one suspect after an attempted murder in Waipahu Tuesday night.
The shooting happened on Leoku Street near the Post Office just before midnight. According to police, an argument between a group of people escalated to a shooting. When one of the men involved in the argument got into a car, police say someone fired several shots into the vehicle.
"I got up and checked my kids room because you know, the windows are right there where the gunshots came from," said Alfred Ma Sun, who woke up to gunshots. "It's scary; I worry about my family, especially when our apartment is right there by the road where it [the shooting] happened."
One of the bullets grazed the man’s face near his eyebrow, according to police. The driver of the car drove the victim to Queen's West Medical Center. The victim, who is a member of the military, was later transferred to a trauma center and is listed in stable condition, according to police.
"I heard one gunshot and then after I heard four more and then I heard people swearing at each other and yelling," said Ida Ma Sun, who just finished her homework when she heard the gunshots. "I also heard people running down the street, too."
Police are investigating the shooting as an attempted murder. No arrests have been made.
