KIHEI, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A man suspected of trying to elude police in a stolen car was shot and killed by a Maui police officer in the parking lot of the Mana Kai Maui resort in Kihei. Authorities identified the man as Marshall M.K. Langford, 31, of Wailuku.

The drama unfolded in the parking lot of the Mana Kai Maui resort on South Kihei Road. Police said they responded a report of a stolen vehicle and found Langford in the car shortly before 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday. He tried to escape in the vehicle, according to authorities. He allegedly pulled out a handgun and pointed it at an officer. Police said the officer responded by firing his weapon.

"I heard what sounded like a car accident, so I looked outside and I saw a police officer with his gun drawn," said Kihei Surfside Resort worker Trish Herrell. "Then I heard, 'Stop, police. Stop, police' and then I heard three shots fired."

Langford has 18 prior convictions from 2004 to 2006, according to state records. They include theft, criminal property damage,drug violations and car break-ins. Witnesses said Langford's distraught family showed up after the shooting.

"The entire family is here and they're just crying. You can hear it echoing down the road," Herrell said.

The SWAT team searched the property for another person who had been with Langford earlier. Authorities evacuated a few hundred guests for more than two hours from the Mana Kai Maui which has vacation rentals as well as condominiums.

"They were doing like hand signals, communicating very well, started running through the lobby. Then that's when I was like, 'Whoa, there was somebody else involved.'" said eyewitness Jarred Thomas.

"They decided to check every single room so they evacuated all of the guests out of the rooms, had them come down to the lobby area," explained Winston Chinn, general manager of Manu Kai Maui.

Maui police officers later searched for a second suspect in the nearby community of Wailea. Police say he turned himself in last night at a 6:40 p.m.

Polcie says he is a 28 year old male from Wailuku and is being held at the Wailuku Police Station as the Investigation continues.

The police officer who fired his weapon is an 18-year veteran of the Maui Police Department, assigned to the Kihei Patrol. He is on administrative leave pending an investigation as part of standard procedure by MPD.
