Police are looking for a 32-year-old man who fired a gun toward a 25-year-old man Friday afternoon in Olomana near Kailua.

The shooting took place at the end of Ulupuni Road in a gated agricultural area, said neighbors familiar with the incident. The land is owned by HRT Ltd., a part of the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, and leased to the Makalii Valley Farmers Association, according to property tax records.

Neighbors said they have complained to police for years about chicken fighting and other criminal activity on the grounds.

One neighbor who heard the shots said he heard three to four pops in quick succession.

Police said the shooting happened after a boy told his father there was a man with a gun parked down their driveway about 3:30 p.m.

When the man confronted the other man, the two argued, and the gunman pointed the handgun in the direction of the other man, then fired “a shot past his head,” police said. 

The shooter fled before police arrived.

Police said they have a possible name of the gunman.
