HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The man arrested after allegedly opening fire toward a Honolulu police officer in Waianae on Saturday evening has been charged.

According to an arrest highlight, around 6:30 p.m., officers responded to a services type call at an area home. When one officer arrived and exited his marked patrol vehicle, 45-year-old Chadwick Downie allegedly fired several shots toward the officer.
