    20120215-1814 CTY SHOOTING A 41 year old man shot and killed his wife before taking his own in the carport at 59-811 Kamehameha Hwy. (between Waimea Bay and Foodland on Pupukea Rd. and across Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church). Police are investigating the crime scene behind the yellow barricade. Capt. Britt Nishijo said the case is being investigated as a murder/suicide and that the couple was estranged. This is the scene just inside the carport as two of the people who are transporting the bodies, are taking out the blue body bags (without the bodies so far). After the bodies are put in the bags, they were loaded into the transport vehicle and driven away. The police put up a protective yellow tarp to shield the bodies from view when they were loaded in the "wagon" to be taken away. PHOTO BY DENNIS ODA. FEB. 15, 2012.
