A man who was wielding a knife inside a Ross Dress for Less store in Kaneohe has been taken into custody, police say.

Police were called to the store inside Windward City Shopping Center around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

In a video, police officers could be seen with their weapons drawn on the man who appeared to have the knife in one hand and a pile of clothes in the other.

One of the officers is then seen firing a non-lethal round at the man.

“Everyone just started freaking out,” said one witness. “Everyone was just running out of the store, but the police seemed to have it under control, it was just kinda scary.”

The man was eventually apprehended. 

Police say the suspect was taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation.

No one else in the store was hurt.
