SUNSET BEACH (HawaiiNewsNow) - Residents on Oahu's North Shore say they're still shaken up about the gunfire that broke out on their street.

On Saturday, new details emerged about the man police arrested for allegedly firing several rounds.

A day after gunshots shattered the peace at a Sunset Beach neighborhood, residents on Mamao Street say they're still in shock.

Neighbors of the man police arrested are too afraid to speak on camera.


But a couple residents tell Hawaii News Now that they ran into their house and locked themselves in their bathroom after they heard several shots fired.

Honolulu police arrested 58-year-old Robert Kenneth Nicoll.

Neighbors say he lives with his wife and son on Mamao Street.

On Friday evening, a witness says he saw Nicoll at Turtle Bay.


Honolulu police say he yelled and pointed a handgun at a parking lot attendant, fled to Sunset Beach, threatened an officer, then fired a shot in the air.

Police say Nicoll then headed back to his neighborhood on Mamao Street, fired several more shots, including one at his neighbor's door.

Police say Nicoll fired a total of 11 rounds, then surrendered.

No one was hurt.


Nicoll now faces several charges, including terroristic threatening and reckless endangerment.
