HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Bomb technicians were deployed to a home and several nearby residents were briefly evacuated in Kalihi on Thursday morning after a report of a possible explosive device.

Police said around 6 a.m., officers responded to a domestic violence call between a 32-year-old woman and a 39-year-old male suspect at the 1100 block of Hala Drive.

When officers arrived, the suspect already fled. As police searched the home, officers found what appeared to be an explosive device, so they alerted bomb technicians.

Upon further investigation, bomb technicians determined the device was not an explosive.

However, authorities recovered a firearm along with the device.

Residents in the area were briefly evacuated.

The suspect is still on the loose.

The scene has since been cleared.
