Man shoots another man after argument, kills himself


A man is dead and another hospitalized following what police are calling an attempted murder and suicide in Hawaiian Ocean View Estates.

Police today said the incident happened Wednesday evening on Tiki Lane, near Luau Drive. Police said a 37-year-old man entered his home and a 48-year-old man followed him and shot him. The shooter then left the house and fatally shot himself.

The victim was flown to Kona Community Hospital, then to The Queen’s Medical Center on Oahu, where he is listed in critical but stable condition.

A subsequent investigation showed the men had gotten into an argument prior to the shooting. The shooter and victim did not live together, police said.

The dead man’s name is being withheld pending notification of his family. Detectives from the Area II Criminal investigations section are continuing the investigation.
