HONOLULU (KHON2) — Police, SWAT teams and EMS have all gathered at the scene during a Kalihi investigation.
According to HNL Info Alerts, Halona Street is closed heading westbound near Kohou Street as heavy police presence remains at the scene.
Officials said the road closure was prompted at around 7:20 p.m. on Friday as police investigated “suspicious circumstances.”
By 9:45 p.m. police reported that a male suspect surrendered himself and was taken into custody.
Police said preliminary reports at the beginning of the incident led them to believe that a man was barricading himself. He was armed, and a female was in the residence at the time.
Other residents within the house and the adjacent properties were evacuated, said police.
Residents who have tried to enter the area to reach their homes were turned away by police who said it was not safe for them to return during the investigation.
Police redirected cars from the area as well. Drivers were asked to use alternate routes.
No injuries were reported.
