Police continue to search for a suspect today after a 31-year-old woman was seriously injured during a shooting in a rural Kahaluu subdivision.
The shooting, which occurred around 12:50 p.m. near the intersection of Waihee Place and Waihee Road, stemmed from a domestic violence incident, and the suspect fled the scene, police said. He was identified as 41-year-old Bronson K. Gouveia and he remained at large Sunday night. He is described as 6-feet-1-inch tall, 272 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He has 22 prior convictions and is known to frequent Waianae and Kaneohe. Officers opened a second-degree attempted murder investigation.
Police said a bullet grazed the woman’s head.
Firefighters responded to treat the woman and turned her over to paramedics at about 1:15 p.m., said Honolulu Fire Department Capt. Scot Seguirant. An Emergency Medical Services report said paramedics took the woman in serious condition to a hospital.
Shortly after the incident, police issued an all-points bulletin for the suspect, saying he was seen in a 2008 silver BMW 3-series sedan, Hawaii license plate EF134 with a tinted “Murder 187” sticker on the back windshield, driving toward town on the H-3 freeway, according to police dispatch communications. The bulletin said the suspect used a small handgun in the shooting.
Residents in the quiet neighborhood said they weren’t aware anything had happened until after they heard emergency vehicles arrive.
