HONOLULU (KHON2) — A manhunt on Oahu has made its way to another island. According to the Honolulu Police Department, the man who prompted a lockdown on Schofield Barracks was taken into police custody on Molokai Thursday night.
The U.S. Army Garrison Hawaii had enforced a shelter-in-place order at around 2:30 p.m. A few hours later the order was lifted after the military said the threat was no longer on base.
Later that night, the Maui Police Department confirmed the 27-year-old suspect was arrested without incident just shortly after 8:05 p.m. on Molokai.
Video from a witness at the scene of the arrest shows the suspect being taken in by police:

- 5’10” male
- Between the ages of 25 and 35
- Mohawk-type haircut
- Wearing a button-down collared aloha shirt, light blue jeans, tan Nike foam shoes with red swoosh and a Multicam cross-body bag
