After responding to a 10:48 p.m. call Monday, police learned that the 47-year-old woman heard gunshots from the road on the 13-1200 block of Leilani Boulevard followed by the sound of a vehicle driving away in the makai direction. She then discovered a bullet hole in her house, which was occupied by five persons, police said.
Detectives recovered a bullet from inside the home. The case is being investigated as five counts of first-degree reckless endangering.
