HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police are still searching for a motorcyclist accused of shooting a 53-year-old man waiting at a Wahiawa bus stop on Wednesday morning.
The shooting happened about 11:30 a.m. at a bus stop on California Avenue near Dole Road.
Adam Kalawa-Holbron, the victim’s cousin, said he heard the gunshots and ran to help.
“He was just screaming and he was bleeding very bad. I was on autopilot the whole time,” he said.
With the help of several soldiers, Kalawa-Holbron got his cousin into his truck and drove him to Wahiawa General Hospital.
The victim, who had suffered gunshot wounds to his leg, was then transferred by paramedics to the Queen’s Medical Center in serious condition.
“We thought he was going shoot at us or finish off my cousin,” Kalawa-Holbron said. “It was hard to recall exactly what I saw. I was just trying to hurry up and get my cousin the help he needed.”
Investigators are looking into whether the victim and suspect know each other.
Kalawa-Holbron said he doesn’t think the suspect was trying to kill his cousin, just hurt him.
Bystander Rollin Olaso was making lunch in his kitchen when he heard gunfire.
“There was about three gun shots very repetitive. Pop, pop, pop," Olaso said. “It sounded like he went past the bus stop again just to see the guy again.”
After the shooting, police blocked off the area.. Several area schools were also put on lockdown.
