Attempted murder investigation launched after drive-by shooting leads to crash

KANEOHE (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police are investigating an attempted murder after a reported drive-by shooting in Kaneohe early Tuesday.

According to police, someone fired shots at a sedan near Likelike Highway and Anoi Road around 2 a.m.

It’s unclear if the 32-year-old victim’s sedan was hit, but he did manage to escape, though officials say he was chased all the way down to Mokulele Drive, where he flipped his vehicle attempting to flee.

The victim’s sedan rolled over into the driveway of a home off of Namoku Street around 2:30 a.m., knocking down several trees but not injuring anyone.

HPD says the victim is reluctantly cooperating with police. He was unable to provide the suspect’s vehicle’s description, but detectives believe he may know who the gunman is.

Sources say police did not find bullet holes in the victim’s car and that residents near Anoi Road did not report hearing gunshots to 911 this morning.

Honolulu firefighters were called out to help clear the debris and mop up any fuel that spilled on the roadway.

Police are still looking for the suspect.
