    Police investigated an apparent double shooting on Kukulu Street today.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office was awaiting positive identification today of two people who died New Year’s Day in a murder-suicide shooting in Kapolei.

Police said a 32-year-old man killed a 56-year-old woman with “a dangerous instrument” before using the same instrument on himself about 2:30 p.m. Friday.

Paramedics responding to an emergency call at the Kukulu Street residence found the woman dead of an apparent gunshot wound, and the man suffering from a single gunshot wound, an Emergency Medical Services report said.

Police said the man was taken to a hospital where he died. The shooting may have occurred during a New Year’s party at the residence, police said.

Detectives remained at the scene for several hours Friday evening to investigate.
