“Through investigation, it was learned that the victim and her husband had a verbal argument with another male,” Honolulu Police Department Lieutenant Deena Thoemmes said. “During the course of that argument, an unknown male arrived and brandished a firearm the firearm discharged and struck the victim in her head.”

The woman, who has yet been identified by the medical examiner, was transported to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

An autopsy determined the cause of death to be a gunshot wound to the head. The manner of death was a homicide.

It is still unclear whether the victim and the suspect or suspects knew each other.

Thoemmes said, “Homicide detectives are continuing to process the scene, interview witnesses, review 911 calls as well as surveillance footage and process evidence, at this time this incident does not appear to be a random act.”

The Honolulu Police Department did not share further details or reasons why they believed the shooting was not a random act.

Meanwhile, residents and workers in Chinatown are disturbed by Friday’s violent crime.

The Chinatown Business and Community Association President Chu Lan Shubert-Kwock said there is a sense of crime escalating in the area among business owners, some are closing earlier due to less foot traffic and safety concerns.

Police said they have not made an arrest yet, and they have not shared information on persons of interest.
