According to CrimeStoppers Honolulu, the victim, a 37-year-old man, was walking around in the Kakaako area when he was apparently involved in a verbal altercation with another man.

As the argument escalated, Crimestoppers says the suspect reportedly shot the victim in the lower extremity with a handgun and apparently fled in a white colored sedan.

EMS transported the 37 year old to a nearby hospital in serious condition.

No other injuries were reported and the scene has since been cleared.

Meanwhile, the suspect is being described as a local Asian male, fair complexion, with dark short hair and a flat top.
