Mililani barricade situation ends peacefully

MILILANI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

An apparent barricade situation in a Mililani neighborhood ended peacefully at about 3 p.m. Saturday.

The incident began at around 11 a.m. on Kealakaa Street, off Lanikuhea Avenue. "Patrol responded here in response to EMS (Emergency Medical Services). EMS had contacted for a co-response on a distraught male. Once they got here, at some point the male barricaded himself and was not going to come out," said Honolulu Police Maj. Alexander Ahlo.

Officers from the Specialized Services Division began arriving at around 1 p.m. "We're not sure if there was weapons involved. There was talk of weapons and possible threats, and that's why we responded."

Some neighbors said they had initially heard that the man inside may have been armed. "My mom asked the cop what was happening, and the cop was like, well, he won't come outside of his house and apparently there's a gun involved," said Lela Seely.

SSD officers entered the home and found the 36-year-old man had passed out. "We were able to go in and recover him and thankfully he was removed by EMS and being taken to the hospital for treatment," said Ahlo.

Ahlo also said the man was not armed when he was found. He was the only person in the residence.

Residents said there have been no earlier incidents on the quiet residential street. "This is a very quiet place," said Ester Ana. "Nothing's happened like this since we've lived here, and we've been here for 30-something years."
