AIEA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A 72-year-old retired firefighter was arrested Saturday following an apparent road rage incident in Aiea that left a single father of three dead.

The incident happened about noon on Moanalua Road near Aiea Heights Drive, after two drivers got into a traffic-related argument, police said. 

A source said one of the drivers exited his vehicle and punched the other driver, who then allegedly retaliated by firing his gun.

Witnesses said the shooter then drove over the 31-year-old victim's body before fleeing the scene.

The 31-year-old was taken in critical condition to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Family and friends identified the shooting victim as Keenyn Pahio, of Kalihi, a carpenter.

Witnesses said two of Pahio's younger daughters were in his vehicle at the time of the incident.

"I heard a gunshot go off and we were like, 'Wow, what was that?'" one witness said. "We look over by the bus stop, then there was a guy laying on the street. It's sad to see, especially in Hawaii."

It didn't take long for police to locate the alleged shooter, identified as 72-year-old Darryl Freeman.

Police said he barricaded himself inside his home, about two miles from the crime scene, before eventually surrendering.

Freeman was arrested for second-degree murder.

Neighbors told Hawaii News Now they live in fear of Freeman and that he has a history of threatening others in the neighborhood.

Police shut down Moanalua Road by the Aiea Shopping Center for nearly five hours while they investigated.
