Shortly after the incident, police closed two westbound lanes of Kapiolani Boulevard to conduct their investigation. EMS reported that the patient was approximately 30 years old.

“It looks like the victim, that was near the bridge, flagged down the witness and she saw him bleeding from the chest. The suspect was running across the street carrying the knife,” said HPD’s Lt. Deena Thoemmes during a news conference. “Officers apprehend him here, across the street at Kaimuki High School, and this is where he puts down the knife and he gets arrested.”

Police said initial investigation revealed that the suspect and victim are acquaintances, and this attack doesn’t appear to be random.

Officials also said some school staff were on campus, but students were not in attendance due to fall break. The Department of Education said a lockdown was initiated for staff but it was immediately canceled at the discretion of police.

The 43-year-old male suspect was arrested for second-degree murder in connection with this incident. The victim’s identity is not being released at this time.
