Woman dead, man seriously injured in Waikiki shooting

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:03 p.m. HST, Oct 28, 2013

Honolulu police responded early this morning to what they are calling an apparent murder-attempted suicide in Waikiki that left a 33-year-old woman dead and a 40-year-old man hospitalized with serious injuries.

Paramedics took the man, who had a gunshot wound, to Queen's Medical Center from the 100-unit Ala Wai Townhouse condominium at 2421 Ala Wai Boulevard after being called to the building at about 4:25 a.m.

CIty Emergency Medical Services personnel said the woman was dead on arrival.

Honolulu Police Capt. Lisa Mann said there are no other suspects in what is an apparent murder-attempted suicide case.

Police would not say if the 911 call originated from the 20-story Ala Wai condominium.

Two Army Criminal Investigation Command investigators also were called to the scene. One of the investigators said they were there because the man was believed to be a soldier.

Several people who live in the building said they didn't hear any shots this morning. But several residents from nearby apartment buildings told reporters about hearing multiple gunshots early Saturday morning.

Larry Trusedell said just after 3 a.m. Saturday: "I heard 5 to 7 shots. When I looked out I expected to see police, but I saw nothing."

Johnny Rox, who also lives adjacent to the Ala Wai Townhouse, also reported hearing gunfire on Saturday. He said "the cops are here all the time."

Ask Deedy and Elderts family. What can go wrong in Waikiki in the very early hours with loaded guns? As always, we can all agree on one thing: more handguns means less violence. Just makes common sense.

Really?? In the Deedy case, a handgun was used. In this incident, a handgun was used. How does that make having more handguns less violent??

I think Slow was just being sarcastic in his posting. That's the logic used my gun rights advocates the the national rifle association that guns prevent violence.

Jeezus, What does Deedy and Elderts have to do with this murder suicide?? Everyone please stop the violence. What is making people so angry that they would want to kill another person? Do we need anger management classes starting at the younger ages? We need to start breeding a better generation and the time is now.

Ask Keith Kaneshiro why Deedy is not charged with manslaughter. Who is he taking orders from?

It's not on Keith, blame the Prosecutors, they put on a false show that it was Murder, didn't you read the papers? There wasn't eveidence put on in the trial to warrant the manslaughter charge. CRAZY Prosecutors thinking they had Deedy all wrapped up for Murder. Keep voting them Democrats in in Hawaii.
