Aloha! Here are some of the stories we're working on for Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30 on this Tuesday.
REPORTED SHOOTING AT WAIMALU ZIPPY'S
Information is still coming into our newsroom, but we're on top of reports of a shooting at the Waimalu Shopping Center. We can tell you that roads in the area are closed at Kauwa St. and Kanuku St. due to the ongoing police investigation. If you're headed that way, you should use alternate routes. We have a crew on the scene and will have the most up to date information at the top of Hawaii News Now at 5.
CITY BUS DRIVER UNDER INVESTIGATION
The city is looking into reports -- and cell phone video taken by a passenger -- that allegedly shows a bus driver reading while at a stop, but driving nonetheless; and for making up his own rules on who pays and who doesn't to ride the bus. Dan Cooke will have more on this story tonight at 5.
FOUR YEAR OLD GIRL KIDNAPPED IN EWA BEACH; RECOVERED. SUSPECT ARRESTED
We're closely following the story of a four year old girl who, police say, was kidnapped by a 37-year-old man while she was playing in her brother in their backyard yesterday afternoon. We'll have the latest information for you tonight.
NEW STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION HOLDS FIRST OFFICIAL MEETING
They were appointed, questioned by Senators, and then confirmed -- and today, the nine member state Board of Education held its first "official" meeting. We'll take you inside the meeting room and speak one-on-one with Chairperson Donald Horner to see how things went today; and also tell you who's in charge of each of the board's committees. That's tonight at 5:30.
RAMSAY WHARTON LIVE FROM THE BIG ISLAND
We'll take you back to the Hilo side of the Big Island and check in with Ramsay Wharton. She's there covering the lead up to the Merrie Monarch Festival. Tonight, she'll talk story with a talented Na Hoku Hanohano Award nominee.
"PIG WHISPERER" OF HAWAII ISLAND
And Malika Dudley goes wild -- hog wild on the Kona side of Hawaii Island. She'll introduce us to a man known as the "pig whisperer." That's tonight at 5:30.
I hope you'll join Stephanie Lum and me for these stories and more on Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30. See you then!
