SALT LAKE STANDOFF
A police standoff in Salt Lake is over after 11 hours. Just minutes ago, police were finally able to convince a 36 year old man to come out of his home in the military community "Radford Terrace." He holed himself up there around 5:30 last night. Neighbors were asked to evacuate even though there was no weapon or anyone with him inside. We expect they'll be allowed back inside their homes any minute now. The man lives there with his wife and children. His wife reportedly called police yesterday, saying her husband was possibly suicidal. More details ahead on Sunrise.
BOATER IN DISTRESS
We're also at the scene of a boater in distress off Sand Island. That's where crews responded to help out a boat stuck on the reef.
MANHUNT FOR ESCAPED BIG ISLAND INMATE
Big Island police are on the hunt from a 31 year old inmate who escaped from the Hale Nani facility. Ryan Jeffrie-Shamar was arrested in 2007 for burglary. No word how he got away, but Hale Nani is the reintegration program for Hawaii Community Correctional Center. It offers a work release program for inmates who are going to be released on Hawaii Island.
