Hawaii County police are investigating an attempted murder and suicide in Kau.

Police said two men who live in separate houses in the Hawaiian Ocean View Estates subdivision got into an argument at about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The victim, a 37-year-old man, entered his own home and the suspect, a 48-year-old man, followed the victim inside and allegedly shot him. He then stepped out of the house and fatally shot himself, police said.

The victim was flown to Kona Community Hospital and was later transferred to Queen's Medical Center, where he is listed in critical but stable condition. 

The shootings occurred on Tiki Lane at the intersection of Luau Drive.
