The Maui Police Department has identified the man killed in a shootout with police in Wailuku Sunday as wanted fugitive Kaulana “Togi” Reinhardt.

MPD spokesman Lt. Gregg Okamoto said Reinhardt, 26, was wanted on numerous arrest warrants including one for $1 million for attempted first-degree murder.

Okamoto said the shootout happened following a pursuit that ended at Kaohu and Market streets. He said officers had spotted Reinhardt driving a stolen pickup truck and that Reinhardt refused their orders to stop.

The exchange of gunfire happened after Reinhardt pulled out a handgun as two officers tried to arrest him, Okamoto said. After Reinhardt was hit, he said the officers administered CPR and applied an automated external defibrillator until medical help arrived.

An ambulance took Reinhardt to Maui Memorial Medical Center where he died.

Okamoto said one officer sustained minor injuries that did not require medical treatment. He said there were no other injuries to officers or bystanders.

He said the two officers involved in the shooting, one with three years of experience and the other with 15, have been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure when officers discharge their weapons.

On Friday, Maui police had asked for help in locating Reinhardt and warned the public not to approach or try to apprehend him.

According to state court records, Reinhardt was also wanted for violating probation on his conviction for a number of 2015 crimes including burglary, car theft, resisting an order to stop, reckless driving, attempted criminal property damage and terroristic threatening.

Reinhardt was sentenced in 2017 to four years of probation, including some jail time.

Circuit Judge Peter Cahill revoked the probation this past September and re-sentenced Reinhardt to a new four-year period of probation, including more jail time, for committing more crimes, including breaking into a motor vehicle, criminal property damage and violating a restraining order.

Cahill granted Reinhardt early release from his jail term to enter residential drug treatment at Habilitat on Oahu then ordered Reinhardt’s arrest in October after Reinhardt failed to complete the program and didn’t tell his probation officer where he was.
