Big Island police are investigating a shooting in Hawaiian Acres Wednesday evening.

The shooting happened on Road five around 3:45 p.m.

Neighbors who called 911 say the victim is a man in his 60's.

Bob Passafiume went to the store and returned home to a shocking sight. 

"When we got home, I carried a load of groceries back to the house and I saw him laying on the ground," he said. "I dropped my groceries, he was passed out, I got him to wake up. I told him don't move and I went back the car, got my phone called 911."

The man was transported to a nearby hospital. Sources say he remains in critical condition. 

Sources also say the victim had been shot in the chest and beaten.

The investigation is ongoing.
