Police have opened an attempted-murder case and are looking for three men in connection with a break-in and shooting at a Kailua home shortly after midnight Tuesday.
Three men allegedly entered the living room of the home in the Aikahi area about 12:12 a.m., police said. One of the men pointed a firearm at two people in the house, a 19-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl, police said. The two other intruders entered a bedroom, where they confronted a 25-year-old man, police said.
The two men in the house began fighting off the intruders when the one with the firearm shot at the two younger victims but missed.
The three intruders fled. The two men in the house sustained minor injuries during the scuffle.
Police opened investigations into first-degree attempted murder, second-degree attempted murder and first-degree burglary. Detectives said they believe they have a possible motive but declined to give specifics.
