A 22-year-old Pearl Harbor sailor armed with a shotgun surrendered to police at about 12:45 p.m. Thursday, ending a barricade situation at his home in Moanalua Terrace Navy Housing.
The Navy petty officer arrived home just before noon and allegedly threatened the people there — his wife and at least two other women and two to three babies, Honolulu police Maj. William Chur said.
The man’s wife remained inside while the other women picked up the children and ran out, Chur said.
About 15 officers arrived at the Rood Court duplex. Police evacuated a couple of nearby homes “in the line of fire” and cordoned off the area, Chur said. They also shut down nearby Radford Drive.
The man and his wife walked out, and the man surrendered. He was arrested on suspicion of four counts of terroristic threatening and two counts of firearms offenses.
