Police tape blocked off the street for hours into the evening for the investigation.

A man who lives nearby said he saw a Honda sedan chase a black truck down the dead end road, then block the truck in.

“I thought they knew each other because they were like swearing to each other,” witness Ernie Pigao said.

“That’s when the Honda driver came out and then, that’s when the two pops came out. Pop pop. The truck sped away and went out to Waimano Home Road,” he added.

The case is being handled as a second-degree murder investigation.
