Police continue search for gunman in Waipahu shootings

Police are still looking for a gunman who shot two people in a botched robbery attempt on Friday in Waipahu.

Police said the two victims were released from the hospital the same night of the shooting.

The victims, a 39-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, drove into the parking lot of Bank of Hawaii at 94-712 Farrington Highway about 7:42 p.m. Friday when a gunman approached. He demanded that the victims get out of the vehicle and fired several shots when the driver attempted to drive away, police said.

The gunman was last seen fleeing on foot and may have gotten into a light-colored SUV parked in the Waipahu Festival Marketplace on Waipahu Depot Road, police said.

The victims were taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Police were exploring the possibility that the shooting may have been work-related because of the violent nature of the attack. 

The gunman was described as 30 to 40 years old, 5 feet 6 inches to 8 inches tall, with a medium to husky build and black hair. He was wearing a black bandana over his face, light-colored shorts, and a black T-shirt.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME from a cell phone.
