Coming Up on Hawaii News Now Monday

Happy Fourth of July on this Aloha Monday. I hope your Independence Day celebrations are going well. Here's what we're working right now for Hawaii News Now at 5 & 5:30 on KGMB & KHNL.

Two men are in the hospital tonight -- one of them fighting for his life -- after a shooting early this morning in Central Oahu. The shooting happened at a popular Mililani park. Ramsay Wharton picks it up from there starting tonight at 5 on Hawaii News Now.


The grills have been lit, the sun block lathered on, and American flags unfurled -- and fireworks permits secured. So how did it go today? It's America's birthday! And it was a nice one out there at that ... with great weather conditions. We'll check in on 4th of July celebrations from Windward & Central Oahu, and also in town.

With thousands of soldiers still fighting on foreign soil, Schofield Barracks marked Independence Day. Jim Mendoza will have more on that. And overseas, U.S. troops also celebrated the 4th. Throughout our history, our freedom, the principles our country is founded on, and the liberties we all enjoy -- have come at a great cost, particularly by those who fight for our country. Tonight at 5, we'll show you how some in our armed forces observed the day here at home and abroad.


With closing arguments by the prosecution in the Casey Anthony murder trial complete, the case has now been turned over to the jury for deliberation. Prosecutors are being praised for their closing arguments and the way they redirected the case back to, what they say, is its essence -- Casey's motives. We'll show you some of the closing arguments today, starting at 5.

Also tonight, Guy Hagi is "live" at Ala Moana Shopping Center for the latest in the weather department and a look at how thousands will celebrate the 4th of July.

I hope you'll join Stephanie Lum and me for these stories and more on Hawaii News Now at 5 and 5:30 on KGMB & KHNL.
