Police have released a photo and the name of a woman wanted in connection with the shooting of 43-year-old woman in Makaha on Monday.

Police are seeking the public’s help in locating May Iwa Brewer, 32, who is wanted for second-degree attempted murder. She is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall with brown eyes.

Police said that at 4:43 p.m., the suspect approached a 43-year-old woman who was sitting in her car on Farrington Highway near Keaau Beach Park.

Brewer allegedly brandished a handgun, demanded money and struggled for the victim’s property.

During the struggle, the handgun discharged and the victim was struck. Brewer fled in a vehicle operated by an unknown male.

The victim was taken to a hospital in serious condition with a gunshot wound to her head.

Yes of course... Because you're a professional student that once had a scholarship offer to play volleyball for the Wahine. Still in those freshman classes? How many years has that been any way. Yikes!

Exactly aomohoa! Allie...you portray yourself as a young underclassmen at UH. The only problem is you never seem to advance despite years...years...of schooling. Plus you go back and forth on trashing UH athletics for being a waste but yet you have/had a claim to being recruited by the Wahine. I'm all for differing opinions but being hypocritical dlutes your comments.

Allie, For all we know this broad might be from MANOA. She might be your neighbor. It's not like there is NO crime in Manoa. You shouldn't be making any comments SHHH already

You better lock your self in your 10X10 room until you go back to ND, if any of that is true. No one believes anything you say. Oh did you ever take in a homeless woman like you said you would like to do? Ha Ha

"Allie" = TROLL S/he has been around for a very long time -- trolling these message boards. Same M.O. as "Alice" right down to the living in Manoa and young college student who is so afraid of the "Westside" and all areas outside of Honolulu. C'mon Alice/Allie don't you have better things to do!?! Move on!

Who is the gun owner. I wish all names of owners of guns that end up breaking the law become public information, for all to see in the news. They should have some responsibility for the use of the gun, especially with robbery, murders and property damage.

What if the gun was stolen or used without the owners knowledge or permission? If this is the route to take, then will this apply to all car owners whose car was used by someone else who got into an accident? How about releasing the names of parents of kids who committed crimes? Get real!
