Honolulu police opened fire on a burglary suspect in Aiea, shooting him several times.
The suspect is in the hospital and is expected to survive.
Police shot the 35-year-old man after he allegedly tried to run over two officers with a pickup truck.
The incident happened near Alvah A. Scott Elementary School.
"There were about five shots I believe I heard," Alvah A. Scott Elementary School Principal Sandra Watanabe said. "We immediately went into our lockdown procedure."
Luckily, it happened after school.
"Most of the people had gone home. Just A+ [afterschool program]," Watanabe said.
It all started around 3:30 p.m. behind the school on Heleconia Place. That's where officers spotted the suspect. He was wanted for a previous burglary.
"The suspect attempted to flee on a stolen motorcycle, lost control of the motorcycle shortly after that and crashed," HPD Maj. Richard Robinson said. "He then fled from the motorcycle crash and entered the residence behind us, assaulted the 68-year-old homeowner, then barricaded himself inside."
Shortly after, police say he came out after stealing the keys to the homeowner's pickup truck. He tried to take off.
"At that time, the officers tried to take him into custody. He accelerated in reverse, he hit two officers, and multiple officers opened fire at that time," Robinson said.
Their bullets hit the suspect in the chest. He was taken to the hospital in serious, but stable condition and now faces numerous charges.
"Five counts of attempted murder [in the] first [degree], burglary, auto theft two times," Maj. Robinson said.
Police describe the suspect as a "career criminal" with a lengthy rap sheet.
"He has 14 felony convictions, six misdemeanor convictions. The felony convictions include robbery, residential burglary, theft, multiple drug offenses, and multiple auto thefts," Maj. Robinson said.
As for the homeowner, he's okay. So are the officers -- no major injuries for them.
Everyone at the school is okay, too.
"I'm really thankful no one got hurt. That's the main objective," Watanabe said.
The four officers who fired at the suspect are now on administrative leave, which is standard protocol.
They each have between 10 and 22 years of service and are in their late 30s to late 40s.
HPD has launched its own internal investigation.
