Pearl City police search for gunman after shooting

PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Police searched for a gunman in a wooded area near Leeward Community College after a shooting Monday afternoon.

It happened just before one o'clock.  The man, in his 40's, was shot and taken to The Queen's Medical Center in serious condition.

The area is near the college, but police also searched a junkyard on Lehua Avenue, and the wooded area along the bike path nearby.  Several joggers and bike riders ignored the crime scene tape and officers had to chase them out of the area.

The suspect is believed to be armed with an assault rifle and was last seen in a white SUV.

Police do say the victim and the suspect know each other and this is not a random shooting.
