HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) -Police say the man arrested after a long and tense standoff in Pacific Palisades has been charged with attempted murder.

The suspect, 51-year-old Wayman Kaleo Kaua, fired several shots throughout the day Thursday during a roughly 15-hour standoff with law enforcement.

Police say they used what they call “less than lethal gas” to force him out.

The standoff and use of firearms prompted an evacuation of nearby residents who were kept away from their homes for hours.

Kaua also faces terroristic threatening and multiple firearms charges.

His bail has been set at $1 million.

He has 50 prior arrests ― 26 of which are felonies.
