Shooting, Freeway Fall, Akaka Bill

MAKAHA SHOOTING

Police are working an attempted murder case in Makaha. At 8:30 last night, a 26 year old with a critical gun shot wound showed up at the hospital. We're hearing there were actually two different shootings, one of them a drive by. Police have arrested a 23 year old suspect named Chad Durran. Ramsay Wharton is gathering the latest and she'll have the latest on Sunrise.

TEEN FALLS FROM CAR ONTO FREEWAY

We're following another developing story. A 17 year old girl is in guarded but stable condition after falling out of a car on the H-1 freeway. It happened around 2 this morning near the airport. It's not clear how she ended up there, but police tell us they have driver of the car in custody, booked on suspicion of DUI. He says the girl jumped out of the car after an argument.

FINAL PUSH FOR AKAKA BILL

Happening today, Senator Akaka is making one last push before he retires for his Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act, better known as the "Akaka Bill." It's pared down from 60 to 15 pages with some language revisions to make it easier to understand for critics. The Senator has been trying to pass the bill since 2000. Teri Okita is in Washington and will be following developments on our evening news.

SIREN ALERT

A word of warning. Dillingham Airfield's outdoor warning siren will be tested from 8 to 11 AM. The test is to make sure it's working and at the proper range.
